Tommy has something truly special about him. He is a sweet, affectionate orangutan. Inquisitive by nature, he is always calm and moves around with a deliberate and determined manner, charming anyone lucky enough to meet him.
Tommy’s beautiful paisley-shaped eyes stare out at the world like liquid brown pools. When those big dark eyes look up at you, your heart just melts. He will reach out from his enclosure and warmly take a visitor’s hand, eyeing him or her curiously.
Tommy is physically fit and healthy. He doesn’t like to be a bother to his fellow orangutans or his caregivers. However when food is involved, he can be quite demanding. He was a famously picky eater in his younger years, so we are delighted that he is now clapping his hands and making noisy demands for food as he observes his caregivers preparing meals in camp. Like the growing adolescent he is, Tommy always has food on his mind! Be it banana, pineapple, sweet potato, papaya or corn, Tommy will have it.
Tommy’s very best friend is Valentino. There is no way these two can be split up. Whenever they are out, if you find one, the other is sure to be close by. Along for the ride are their buddies Nash and Hayes. This tight knit gang are virtually inseparable. These four young males share a sleeping enclosure. The sleeping enclosure is like a boy’s school dormitory as they crash around and cause havoc within.
