A pondering man of the forest
This orangutan or translated from malay meaning "man of the forest" was found pondering about what his next move would be as he munches on a forest fruit. Orangutans learn essential foraging skills from their mothers or peers and are believed to efficiently plan their foraging routes (on what and where to feed).
