Orangutans

Good Monday morning,

How are you doing?

It has been a while since my last post with zoology theme, so I decided to share some of my animal photos. It won’t be an African classic this time, but I will lean to my favorite animals which are monkeys! MY best encounter with them was in Indonesia for sure, where we went on jungle trekking to find some orangutans in the wild and observe them in their natural habitat. It was very humid and hot plus rough terrain didn’t make it easier, but it was all well worth when we found some monkeys having fun. They were all relaxed and so were we, but seeing them so close without a fence in between is a different experience from zoo. This primate is huge and very strong, but they say that they are of good heart :)
MY big wish is to go in Uganda & Rwanda on gorilla trekking, which has to be super awesome if this one was awesome. Well you never know, but hopefully I will manage to visit gorillas as well to re-live this gorgeous experience with orangutans back in 2017.

It reminds me of the movie 'Rise of the planet of the apes'. They look like the teacher in the movie.

Haha, I know the movie.
Well they are apes, so there are similarities, but these were much more calm.

It's truly a joy to see our lovely orangutans again! Because you had the chance to observe them from a close distance, what distinct behaviors or actions did they show that caught your attention?

I have a lot of them in my archive. It is hard to resist from taking clicks when you have such a great opportunity.
Hmmm, what would I highlight? Probably how they came to greet us. At first, when we spot them, they were on the distance but were curious and came to say hi. I even gave a banana to one :)

You can really read them well. Probably as humans are similar to monkeys.
I travelled back myself as well while publishing this post :)

They are so playful but still look calm in their faces, no? Loved them. Thanks for sharing :)

Gentle beats of the jungles, something we need to remember is to leave their accommodation alone, they are battling the onslaught of humans.

Face in last photograph tells a\the story of longing to be left alone in their wilderness.

There are many sad stories about how people interfere in animal's habitat.
Hope people will get their mindset turned into the right way...
