This 'Caped Crusader' is a Orangutan resident at the Albuquerque Zoo. Orangutans are only found "in the wild" in Indonesia and Malaysia. They are the most arboreal (tree dwellers) of the great apes, and use natural sophisticated tools to construct elaborate sleeping nests from branches and foliage.
The name "Orangutan" is derived from 'orang' meaning person, and 'hutan' meaning forest. Their primary diet is fruit, but they will also consume vegetation, bark, honey, insects and even bird eggs. Their life span can be over 30 years.

You have also just made my day first a fox & now a monkey - my favourite little critter... I guess I like monkey's because of their intelligence & cheekiness.
And this little Orangutan is beautiful - he's saying look at me I am not just cute I am ready for some action!!!
Thanks for putting a smile on my face...

Huh? Don't you think he's a bit hairy as crusaders go? He's a cute little fella, though.

It still fits nicely into the theme tune too, nah nah nah nah nah orangutan. Cool shot of this superhero in disguise, one that cannot but make you smile!

Hi, Ray, good December morning,
Good title for so funny scene indeed, great timing shot, it reminds me a circus or theater.
