  • Sometimes it seems like the orangutans know they're being watched so they put on a show.
  • You'll laugh the whole time. They were funny
  • Orangutan swinging. We saw two of them!
  • Or an a tag swinging. Awesome, there were two of them!
  • It's a great place to be a monkey.
  • It is really cool seeing the orangutan cross over the path.
  • It really reeks in here and can be quite unbearable.
  • The Great Ape House stinks. Clip your nose and walk through it quick.
