Addiction: Orangutan


I am addicted to Orangutans. I have been as long as I can remember. I just got back from visiting my sister and we went to the zoo with the kids. I was so excited to go see the orangutans. My sister stood with the kids while I watched the monkeys play for awhile. I think I was more excited to see these guys then the kids were.

I love orangutans too! They're my dad and I's favorite animal to see at the zoo (have you ever seen them with burlap sacks over their heads? They love that)! I love the expression this orangutan has on it's face too. What a great picture! --Jenny

What a random addiction, but a great shot! Don't worry, I was addicted to frogs for the longest time. It took me years to finally let to of all the frog figurines I had collected! ;)

This is a great shot!! I love the hand on the edge of the rock. It feels like you are right there next to him.

Hi,
I randomly found your beautiful orangutan photo from a google search and thought I'd say hello!

Orangutans are critically endangered in the wild. If you'd like to learn more about them and see how you can help protect them please visit the Orangutan Outreach website.

Thanks! Rich
