OFI Australia Foster Orangutan Tommy

Tommy (Foster Kit)

$100.00 / year

Tommy has something truly special about him. He is always calm and he moves around with a deliberate and determined manner.

He knows what he wants, where he wants to be and whom he wants to be with. He oozes a gentlemanly calm persona that can charm anyone who is lucky enough to meet him. When he pouts with his pudgy soft lips and his big, round dark eyes look up at you, your heart just melts.

Tommy is a sweet natured and shy orangutan. Yet he is also inquisitive by nature. Each day when Tommy is taken to forest school, he immediately leaves the infant playground and bounds off into the forest. Tommy relishes his time in the forest. It shows!  Nest making seems a favorite hobby and he practices his skills any chance he gets. Tommy has grown into a confident climber. With each release, he goes higher and higher into the canopy. Being adept at climbing, Tommy has been able to discover, taste, and learn about many of the fruits and other edible foods the forest has to offer. You can often hear Tommy perched high up in a tree, happily chomping and crunching on fruits or young leaves.
