Happy 11th Birthday to our Sumatran orangutan Budi!

Male orangutans transform into adulthood usually between 16 and 20 years old. At this age they start to make the facial change from looking female to growing face plates specific to males. Adult male orangutans can weigh up to 250-300lbs! Budi now weighs 112lbs, so he has a little way to go ;)
