• Baby Orangutan and Surrogate Mom Maggie

    107,344 views 1 year ago
    Kecil (pronounced Ka-cheel, which is Indonesian for little), a 6-month-old male orangutan is doing well in large part due to the dedicated animal care staff at Toledo Zoo, Milwaukee County Zoo, and Brookfield Zoo. Watch the video for his full story! As a note, it will be many months before Kecil and his surrogate mom, Maggie, will be on exhibit for guests to see. Animal care staff want to give the two time to develop their relationship. In addition, Kecil needs to become much more agile and mobile before being introduced to the exhibit. Stay tuned for updates! Show less
