Old Men And Lost Forests by MikeShawPhotography Old Men And Lost Forests by MikeShawPhotography
A large male orangutan at Chester Zoo UK, huge animal but something tells you regardless of his strength he is gentle, youngsters jump all over him and he lets them get on with it. I wish though I was watching him his natural habitat, climbing trees and feeding himself. Chester Zoo has to keep orangutans,if they and others organisations didn't then I have no doubt they would be extinct by now. That would only be down to the hands of humankind in our need to "progress" I find it odd that as we progress we regress nataure.
