By far the best part was the orangutans. Connor's favorite at the zoo is always the monkeys, and they are what he calls the "big monkeys"...and luckily they're inside. So we parked ourselves on a bench in front of the big window into their area to watch them play. After a minute or two, one of the zoo docents came into the room on her way some place else, and stopped to chat with us. One of the orangutans, who we learned was named Amber, obviously recognized the lady and came right up to the window to see her. It is one thing to see them from a few feet away, and another thing to actually interact with them.
She told us that Amber loves you to pull shiny things out of your pockets, so we pulled out wallets and cell phones, and everything we could think of, and Amber would put her finger up to the window and point at it if she liked it. It was an amazing experience and we will definitely be back.
