Prague zoo’s month-old Sumatran orangutan finally has a name

PRAGUE (AP) — He’s called Pustakawan, or Kawi, if you wish. Prague’s zoo said on Wednesday it has finally completed the process of naming a critically endangered Sumatran orangutan baby born on its premises on November 17.

It took a while, because the zookeepers had to go through more than 4,000 proposals submitted by members of the public. Kawi is the fourth baby for his mother, Mawar, and the first for father Pagy.
