About: Topi

On February 17, a 10-year-old Bornean orangutan named “Hadiah” gave birth to her first offspring less than two months after her own mother, a 30-year-old Bornean orangutan named “Josie,” gave birth to her fourth offspring, “GoJo.” The newest baby, a female, creates a third generation of the orangutan family living at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo. “Topi” (a Malay word and type of hat or cap worn in Southeast Asia) was born with a thin layer of red hair and cream-colored skin around her face and abdominal region. The tiny infant (estimated at 2-3 pounds) will spend her days resting, nursing and snuggling with mom.
