- Louie is a very sweet and shy orangutan. During his adolescence, he enjoyed playing with the other orangutans at the Center. His best friend and constant companion was orangutan male, BamBam. Both boys would tumble, wrestle, tickle, and chase each other through the woods in the aerial chute system for several years. Now that Louie has grown his adult “cheekpads,” he does not want to share the same territory with another adult male. Currently, Louie’s favorite friend at the sanctuary is Allie. He is very gentle with her and seems to be very aware of her disabilities, treating her carefully and gently when interacting with her.
- Louie loves bubble baths and fastidiously washes everything in sight, including himself. His favorite foods are fruits, but he also likes a variety of leafy greens like collards, bok choy, and kale.
