Gundul... the king of Camp Tanjung Harapan, a male dominant orang utan Orangutans are the most arboreal of the great apes and spend most of their time in trees. Males and females differ in size and appearance. Dominant adult males have distinctive cheek pads and produce long calls that attract females and intimidate rivals. Orangutans are the most solitary of the great apes, with social bonds occurring primarily between mothers and their dependent offspring, who stay together for the first two years.

15.06.2018 🌿 Day Fifteen 🌿 Might be a little morbid for some, but I released my inner goth today and explored the wildlife in a local churchyard. I observed plenty of blackbirds, squirrels and sparrows, and sadly (though perhaps fittingly) a dead bird too. Perhaps I’m cracked, but I’m not actually fearful of graveyards – I always feel either at peace, or just like I’m being quietly observed. The churchyard I explored today is one which I explored as a child, and is home to a medieval church from the 12th Century (St Edward the Confessor’s Church). It is surrounded by many marked Victorian graves, but also contains crosses of anglo-saxon origin which predate the church itself by between 2-6 centuries. #30dayswild #thewildlifetrusts #nature #wildlife #church #churchyard #graveyard #spirits #boo #pagan #witch #witchcraft #witchesofinstagram
