Huge Male Orangutan crosses River in Borneo.

“Face to Face in a River in Borneo.”
While looking for wild orangutans in Tanjung Puting National Park, Indonesia, we witnessed the amazing sight of this huge male crossing a river, despite the fact there were crocodiles in the river.
Rapid growth of palm oil farming has depleted their habitat, and when pushed to the edge, these intelligent creatures have learned to adapt to the changing landscape,
This is proof, considering orangutans hate water and never venture into rivers.
I got five feet deep into the river to get this perspective.
