From young to adult male
This is Amos. An 11-year-old orang-utan who has started to grow into a fabulous adult male. His shoulders are filling out, his muscles are getting bigger and the hair under his arms is growing long. But will his cheeks also grow into big cheek pads? See for yourself in the renovated orang-utan area.
An ape with cheeks
Apenheul is home to wonderful orang-utans. The big, impressive male was Karl. He had dreadlocks, a huge throat sac and big cheeks pads. But Karl was old and unfortunately died when he was 52.
