We almost missed them, but they decided to earn their coconuts after all! The Orang Utans live in the wild, but because there is not enough food in the jungle for the them (due to logging) the research center supplements their diet with fruits twice a day. This is when we can come by and catch a glismpse. We were taken to the 'feeding platform' and waited for over 20 minutes. The park guide had a huge fruit basket and kept calling to no avail. Well, they never came, but on the way out we saw 5 of them (about 24 live around this part of the jungle) which included a playful young male, a new mother and her 3 month old Babeh, a lady enjoying (and throwing) her bananas, and a skillful male who showed us how to crack open a coconut and slurp down like a Champ!
