Gatot: Fall 2019

Gatot is not a little baby anymore! As you can see from the photos he is growing much bigger— and now stays in the forest all day and all night. No more scampering back in the early morning hours! His best friends in the forest are two little guys named Didik and Paijo. They all spend the day in the tree tops and rarely come down to the ground. Gatot is learning to forage in the forest and has a solid grasp of which forest fruits are tasty and safe to eat. He is also able to make an excellent, well-constructed nest to sleep in at night. He stays on Monyet Island with 11 friends from Baby School so he is never lonely. But just to be sure, the caregivers are never too far away— making routine checks— in case any of the little orangutans want to come in for the night!
