Gordon

Gordon is a male orang-utan (Pongo pygmaeus) who was born on 09/12/97 at Monkey World. He is Amy’s son but was born prematurely and had to spend the first month of his life in an incubator. The Primate Care Staff cared for Gordon when he was first born, but all these years later he has grown into a handsome adult male, who has a son of his own named Jin.

Arfur
Hsiao-lan

Hsiao-lan is a female orang-utan (Pongo pygmaeus) who arrived at the park on 24/01/02 and we estimate that she was born during 1994. Hsiao-lan was rescued by the Taiwanese Authorities after being found at an amusement arcade in Kaoshiung. She is one of the shyest orang-utans we have and her name means “little cloud” in Chinese.

Amy

Amy is a female orang-utan (Pongo pygmaeus) who was born on 23/09/83 and has been at Monkey World since the park opened in 1987. She was born in Britain and gave birth to Gordon in 1997.
