When we entered the enclosure, Doris ignored the females and went straight for me. She took my hand and walked me around her enclosure. After that, she climbed up my left to be held. Even though she is half of my size, she weighs about 90 pounds. I couldn't hold her for very long because she is so heavy, but it was a great experience. Not everyone has the opportunity to hold an orangutan, especially one that is 7-years old!
