It’s #TornadoTuesday at Suaq Balimbing Research Station! Get to know the many orangutans that live in the Suaq forest, where there is the highest density of orangutans in the world!

Tornado is a male infant who is just around 4 years old. An age where he is full of curiosity and playfulness. It’s also at this age that his mom, Tiara, will start to encourage him to move throughout the trees more independently. But for a little guy, sometimes the big tree gaps are too far for his arms to reach! So he has to get mom’s attention to come help him. It’s not uncommon for us to see tiny Tornado throwing a temper tantrum if he thinks his mom hasn’t come back to get him quick enough. I’m sure all the mom’s out there can relate to that! #momstruggles
