This is a view of the orangutan exhibit. First of all this is my least favorite exhibit at the zoo, and I think it is a bad representation of our zoo. First I'll defend it: it has many excellent climbing opporotunities and our orangs LOVE to interact with the public. The negative aspects include the terracing and the lack of large foliage. For those who don't know, in the US orangutans make the most escapes, more than any other animal because of their intelligence. So if we had large trees they would probably have escaped if we didn't raise the back wall. We have added a lot of shrubs. While I think this is a bad exhibit for the Columbus Zoo this is an average orangutan exhibit compared to some in the US and in Europe.
