The individual likes to look at newspapers while turning the pages. When she was bred beside a chimpanzee, it behaved to cover her ears by her hands, and she had trouble in moving. After building orangutan quarters, the behavior ceased. The reason seems to be due to the noisy chimpanzee. She shows a pseudo-positive reaction to a tuberculin test.
This individual is nervous, careful, and stubborn. When she is displeased, she sometimes spits on a caretaker.
