Much of a zookeeper’s job involves back-breaking labor – shoveling, lifting, and hauling. The payoff comes when you get to sit back and watch the animals play. With the orangutans, it’s a family experience, with mom, dad and siblings teaching the youngest how to enjoy the toys put out for them.
Luisa has been training Rama at a breakneck pace. Today, it’s time to find out if the training has paid off.
