A lazy orangutan poses at a Surabaya zoo


“I told my counterpart that I really wanted to see an orangutan while I was living in Indonesia. I meant seeing an orangutan in Kalimantan, perhaps at a rehabilitation center, but instead he took me to the zoo in Surabaya where we encountered this fellow. Left without a cage or fence, my counterpart urged me to stand next to the obese orangutan for a picture. Appalled, I politely declined the impromptu petting zoo opportunity and settled for this photo instead.”
