This baby orangutan is Pongo. Pongo is looking at you with his beeg Pongo eyes!
This is Pongo looking lovingly at his mother, with his beeg Pongo smile!
Pongo, and his mother, Blaze, have such a story. (keep those shields up!)
Due to some complications at birth, it took Pongo and his Mom many months to recover and become fully reunited.
And now they are inseparabuls.
With help from many caretakers at Zoo Atlanta working tirelessly around the clock to nurture mother and child back to health and to bond their relationship, this story has a successful, happy ending for all.
Oh and one last thing, Sun., Jan. 12, was Pongo’s first birthday.
Happy Birthday, Pongo!
