Jackie, the orang utan

Jackie is a 20-year old female orang utan living in one of the national parks in Sabah. Although she is allowed to roam free in the surrounding rainforest, Jackie prefers the comfort of her “house”. She no longer builds nests in trees to sleep like normal orangutans, but prefers to cover herself up with a black cloth bag at night. She loves pineapples, but is fed up of eating bananas all the time. Although many people know about Jackie, many more do not, and I prefer it that way so that Jackie won’t get “people-fatigued”.
