If he came from the zoo I went to in Jackson MS. He will be much happier. That zoo I went to needs to be shut down. It was horrible. I don't particularly like Zoo's but when they are helping animals I am all for it.

I'm so happy to see Pumpkin. He looks so happy and also looks like he loves the glass on his enclosure. Please keep posting updates! πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ from Mississippi

Sofia Siegel and Josh-for my bday next week please take me to visit Pumpkin!!

Would it be weird if I went to the zoo and just sat and watched the Orangutans all day?

Cinthya Bazan Rios show Damian please! Although I'm almost sure he's seen it LOL

Pumpkin seems to be very social. He comes up to the glass to say "hi" to the little guests. We loved meeting him!
