orangutan right up by the glass, napping under a burlap sack.

seemed to enjoy peeking at the passersby as much as they enjoyed peeking back. the burlap camouflage was good enough that a couple people walked right past without noticing. i almost did too.

the eyes have it i think.

apparently the orangutans are difficult to keep mentally occupied but i saw the keepers had given them some crayon to play with and they really liked that. one of them used the crayon to scribble on a white plastic pipe piece they'd also been given to play around with.
