    Nice to see orangutans in different places since they are harmless and looks like have a human heart feelings.

    The star of the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park is a small orang utan. But they are very strong, and when they see something shiny on the ground, they will go for regardless of who is in the way. Although, they are friendly most of the time, handlers are always on the alert. A small orang utan can rip apart a coconut in no time at all.
