Carmen is living in an enclosure with her friends Bella, Nanda and Suma. Carmen is closer to Nanda because she is a gentle orangutan whilst Bella and Suma can be more aggressive. Carmen is a gentle orangutan herself and is never aggressive to other orangutans.
Carmen and Nanda always let Bella and Suma get their food first. When Carmen and Nanda receive their food first, Bella and Suma will take their food away so Carmen and Nanda will have to approach the technician to ask for more food.
In her enclosure, Carmen loves to climb and swing. Carmen is in good physical condition because of her healthy eating patterns and exercise in her enclosure. She also eats all of the food and milk provided by the technicians.
