The new and improved Orangutan Habitat at the Phoenix Zoo opens to the public on Monday, April 11. I had the privilege of a sneak peek this morning and had a blast watching them play. Four Orangutans call the Phoenix Zoo home: Duchess (she’s 51!), Bess, Michael and Kasih, the baby of the group at just 5 years old.

Kasih is hiding behind a piece of lettuce.

Lots of green grass and fun stuff to play with.

For more information and to learn about conservation efforts to save these amazing animals, check out the Zoo’s website.
