News & Events
Orangutans, who live in the tropical rain forests of Borneo and northern Sumatra, reach about 30 years old in the wild and 50 years old in captivity.
The Greenville Zoo has two Sumatran orangutans; one female, Lana and one male, Kumar.
In 2017 Kumar turned 12 years old and Lana turned 32 years old.
When orangutans climb, they always have 3 points of contact.
Considered one of the world's 25 most endangered primates, Sumatran oragutans are found only on the island of Sumatra.
