U divljini očevi orangutana nemaju direktnu ulogu u odgoju svojih potomaka.
For everyone wondering how our little Cerah is doing, our keepers will tell you that we are so fortunate that her dad Berani has stepped up to the plate. In the wild, orangutan males are not involved with their offspring. To see Berani step up as Mr. Mom, is an extremely rare situation—and Cerah couldn’t have asked for a better dad. Berani is so attentive and protective of her, seeing to all her needs. He will carry her, comfort her, and even snuggles her when she sleeps. As for big sis Hesty, she’s been taking on her share with Cerah and plays with her through out the day. The three of them are sticking together and moving forward.
