About: Gojo

Born with a thin layer of red hair and cream-colored skin around his face and abdominal region, the tiny infant (estimated at 2-3 pounds) spends his days resting, nursing and snuggling with mom. New babies will ride on their mother’s chest and back for the first few years and will nurse for three to five years, on average.  Orangutan offspring are dependent on their mothers for about seven years.  As one of the world's largest primates, the orangutan is second only to the gorilla in size.
