Peanut was rescued from a palm plantation and now has to learn how to survive in the Jungle by himself. Luckily the team at Sepilok is there to show him the ropes.

    A group of Orangutans should be called Orangugang. That is all I have to say.

    Without its milk bar its utterly lost .. as if they are any less feeble with a mother that wasn't poached. He just really needs something to cry about.. make him climb the ropes in the dark. With hungry pythons and lions below him.. that'll motivate the little entitled tit monster!!

    The palm oil business is EVIL. It's taking out many animals. Read the ingredients of the foods you buy, you'll be surprised how many things it's in. Then write those companies and ask them to find an alternative, boycotting them until they do. Feeling sorry for the animals on you tube is nowhere good enough.

    If rescuers played video in his quarantine quarters regularly, of orangutan babies and communities daily activities, of climbing and playing, he may have had been able to produce some memories that would have alleviated some of the fear he had .

    But we'll all go to the shop and keep using palm oil. I'm not claiming to be any better, I know it is used in many things but I never check. It's destroying the rainforests but it is jus tout of site out of mind for people in the West.

    These babies need the comfort of a mother. I think they are a bit cruel to these babies I my opinion. It takes time to wean a child to be independent. They get there in time but they want to rush the process. It's like teaching a three year old to be a 14 year old.
