Star appeal: On loan to the Zoo from Taman Safari Indonesia, Omar is here with his 2 sisters, Winnie and Jippie. He endears himself to visitors because of his majestic presence and very handsome face.
Humans have a perception of beauty based on symmetry and proportion, and Omar conveys this beauty and grace especially when moving and swimming in his habitat.
He enjoys watching visitors from across the water moat, and has made many visitors happy by willingly posing (without actually knowing it) for memorable photographs.
