Orangutan Playground

The El Paso Zoo is home to a family of orangutans. You can see baby orangutan Khaleesi on exhibit with mommy Ibu Thursday – Sunday and daddy Butch is on exhibit Monday – Wednesday. Orangutan means 'person of the forest’. Orangutans travel by moving from one tree to another. When climbing on the ground, orangutans move on 'all fours', using their clenched fists.
