Ah, sugarcane!

Unconcerned with the scores of humans gawking at him (and hogging prime spots on the viewing platform, much to my disgust), this fellow munches on a stick of sugarcane as we balances himself on the tightrope leading to the feeding platform. This is not a zoo, but a rehab centre. So while the animals are looked after, cared for and introduced back into the wild, many keep returning to the feeding platform for a free meal. They will go back into the forest once they've had their fill. (which happens twice in a day). No cage for this fellow, he is free to go back to the wild after his meal. (Sepilok Orang Utan Rehab. Centre, Sepilok, Sabah, East Malaysia, Nov. 2013)
