RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Metro Richmond Zoo welcomes a male Orangutan born earlier this year to his mom, Tasha and dad, Rory.
The zoo says his name is RJ.
RJ weighed just 4 pounds at birth, which the zoo says is a healthy weight.
When RJ was first born he spent most of his time in his indoor enclosure, but now that it’s warming up, the zoo says RJ is becoming more mobile and is venturing outside.
The Metro Richmond Zoo now has six Orangutans.
