All week long, Palm Harbor Patch is featuring the orangutans at Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in honor of Orangutan Caring Week. Today, meet Pongo!
Pongo, a male, was born on March 3, 1996. He came to the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in February 2009 from a zoo in South Carolina when he had just become a teenager.
Pongo now has his cheek pads, which are unique to males. He weighs about 350 pounds and loves to greet and entertain visitors at the sanctuary.
Come meet Pongo during Orangutan Caring Week, Nov. 11-17, at Suncoast Primate Sanctuary and learn about the plight of orangutans and their rainforest habitat.
