Free-ranging Orangutan, Singapore Zoo

The free-ranging areas have been expanding. Now at any one time, at least 10 orang utans will be free-ranging, weather-permitting of course.

      I know this is an old photo but was prompted to do a photo search (this site is so addictive ......) by another Singapore Zoo photo I saw earlier today.

      How utterly fantastic to have free ranging orangs ........ fantastic for the visitor but most of all for the animals themselves. Am guessing they are constrained by hot wiring ?

      Wow! What a great way to exhibit females and young.

      The suprise and experiance to view a orang like this impressive!

      Are they brought in at night or left out 24 hours?

      there is anoter image in the gallery of the orangs being driven home at night so i gues they have some sort of night area.

      i think it would be so cool to see them free range... untill one pooed on you!

      My daughter visited the zoo last week and said that I (a huge orangutan fan) would have been in heaven. She also said it was the best zoo she'd ever been to.

      There's a thread about Singapore's orangutan enclosures here:

      Orangutan enclousre - Singapore Zoo

      I think that'd be a small price (and low probability) to pay to see them like this !

      would make a cool story too!
