The oldest orangutan 55 years old

The oldest orangutan named Nonja has died at the age of 55 at the Miami zoo. Everyone was sad. Orangutans are the closest relatives to humans. Nonja was born on an Indonesian island and came to Miami zoo in 1983. Nonja was found dead Saturday morning. A usual lifespan for Sumatran orangutans is 40 -50 years. Nonja slowed down each year because of oldness.
