Jumbo came to BOS when hunting dogs scared his mother and he was sadly separated from her. The scars of losing his mother are still fresh and he’ll hug himself when he’s surprised or scared.
Jumbo is an active orangutan who loves nothing more than to play on ropes or the tyre swing. Baby Cinta adores Jumbo and will often go up to him for a cuddle or a play. He grudgingly puts up with this attention, although we all think he secretly enjoys it. Besides learning to climb trees, Jumbo is also learning how to build a nest.
