Ken, the orangutan
Ken’s obituary in one of San Diego’s newspapers, after he passed away in 2000, mentioned him as a “renowned escape artist”. Which he truly was. This orangutan, who was born at the San Diego Zoo, was a real celebrity. He became popular after his series of escapes during the ‘80s. He was able to always find other ways to get out of his enclosure, but he never truly wanted to leave. He just loved and enjoyed the challenge, like a true escape artist does.
