Did you know that the adult male orangutan is twice the size of its female? It's fascinating!
A wonderful reunion
The orangutan mommy, Clara, has lost her baby after the local make dominant took it away. Of course, it was a huge shock for her and she was dreaming of the reunion one day.
After a little while, Clarita was saved by the Orangutan Survival Foundation. The park staff decided to reunite mother and a baby. Nevertheless, they had some fears as well.

Their reunion was so touching! Baby Clarita was eintroduced back to Clara, who slowly tried to touch her through her cage.
It became evident after some time that Clara remembers her baby. She is such a devoted mother!
Clarita stopped crying as soon as she was in her mother’s arms, and the staff realized Clara had offered her milk.
Unfortunately, orangutans are becoming extinct. A century ago, 230,000 orangutans were inhabiting Southern Asia.
Today, that number has dwindled to 41,000 Bornean Orangutans and 7,500 Sumatran Orangutans. How sad it is!miniak / Shutterstock.com
We are so happy for Clara and baby Clarita!
