Twycross Zoo regularly carries out preventative health checks on their animals, to ensure they are all fit and healthy. ‘Batu’ our 33yr old male Northwest Bornean orangutan can be weighed through positive reinforcement training to ensure he maintains a good weight, and to allow proper dosing for his anaesthetics.
