And certainly if it's something that they really enjoy, other zoos might be able to some cognition programs like we already do and have them work pon tough screen computers. So our guys are very used to computers, but maybe it will open up other oppertunities for Orangutans at other zoos. 19. Close up orangutan face20. Medium shot visitor looking at Orangutans21.
