      Both Bornean and Sumatran on separate display. That's quite rare in any zoo I'd say.

      It is very rare indeed, in 1968 I do recall Chester producing a hybrid of the sub-species. He is called Rajang and he is now at Colchester Zoo.

      Good breeding records for both types too :)

      But what a mess this enclosure is!
      At first glance today I thought Iznee was curled up in a ball in the bottom left corner - then I realised it was just the roots of one of the dead conifers ;)
      All apes are destructive, but Bornean orangs must be the worst - they have broken one of the corners of the grey net between the 'branches' on the left of the 'tree' since this photo was taken yesterday.

      1984 0.1 dns
      1985 1.0 Douglas
      1986 0.1 Subis
      1987 0.1 Emma
      1998 1.1 Padang and Jambi
      2004 1.1 Budi and Utara
      2008 0.1 Indah
      2009 0.1 Kirana


      Bornean breeding:
      2009 1.1 Iznee and Latifah

      They have bred a lot more but I'm not as up to date...
