Artist's Description

This is Tom, an adult male orangutan in Tanjung Puting National Park, Central Kalimantan, Borneo.

As he approached the feeding platform you could see the younger male and female orangutan suddenly become alert, through the bushes, and still a distance away, he then let out a ‘long call’, which is a deep resonate tone the dominant male produces with their throat sack. At this point all the orangutans scattered. Tom was coming.

He elegantly lumbered onto the feeding platform and was content to eat alone.
