Carlos is now 12 years old and weighs 50 kg. He has grown into a very handsome orangutan. Carlos lives within the socialisation complex 3 at Nyaru Menteng with six other male orangutans. Carlos is the largest and dominant orangutan amongst his house mates in socialisation complex 3.

When the technicians come to deliver food to the orangutans, Carlos will quickly snatch the food. None of the other orangutans will have the courage to take the food from him. Carlos will also take food from the other orangutans however he doesn’t bully them or become aggressive. Carlos is definitely not a fussy eater so that combined with his food stealing abilities have most likely contributed to his large size!
