Gokong now weighs about 8.5kg. He is a very active little orangutan. His first molar has started to grow. Gokong’s favourite foods are soft fruits like papaya, mango and banana. Like many human children, Gokong doesn’t really like his greens. Gokong is quite slow and neat when eating.

He will finish one whole fruit completely before getting another one. Due to his methodical eating habits, other orangutans often snatch Gokong’s food. Gokong still receives milk in the morning and afternoon since he is still very young.

Gokong is housed with other orangutans named Kedaung, Ujang, Upin and Alam. He has become more independent and now rarely cries.
