Cameron Park Zoo Curator of Programs and Exhibits, Terri Cox, once received a call from the Earl Harrison House Manager asking if the zoo could keep Sam Jack inside on evenings that they were hosting an event since his roaring could be heard so loudly in their gardens.

It doesn't have to just be orangutans - we'd like to include elephants, too, which are also quite intelligent," Terri Cox, Programs & Exhibits Curator, said.
In addition, trainers are now trying to teach the orangutans to interact with new technology, such as touchscreens, in order to draw or play drumming music apps.
"They're highly intelligent," Cox said.

Terri Cox, curator for programs and exhibits at the Cameron Park Zoo, said an animal escape never has happened at the zoo before, and there's a slim possibility of one occurring at the facility.
"What happened there is so different from what could ever happen here," Cox said.
Cox pointed out that the zoo has a "two keeper" rule for the dangerous animal areas, so no one person would be alone in the cages.
Cox said a third team would locate the animal and work to capture it and return it to its enclosure. That team has equipment like darts, nets and sedatives that are locked in safes on two separate ends of the zoo.
The zoo also has a team of staffers who have firearm certifications and have trained with Waco police. But Cox stressed that shooting an animal with bullets would be the last resort if all efforts to contain it failed.
Cox said given the circumstances of the Ohio situation - that the animals were loose at night and that the deputies had no idea how large the animals were or the best dose of sedatives to use - she understands their decision to shoot to kill.
"Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like they had a lot of recourse," Cox said.

Since last year, the numbers have grown to between 75 and 100 vultures, leading officials recently to apply for permits from U.S. Fish and Wildlife to begin removing some of the birds, said Terri Cox, the zoo's curator for programs and exhibits.
Despite initial concerns about safety issues, random samples of the birds' waste have not yet yielded any harmful parasites, she said.
But the birds are upsetting to guests, and they also have proven destructive, damaging roofs of the Brazos River Country exhibit and the sun shade of the lions' exhibit, Cox said.
In the past, zoo officials have tried installing a grid of hot wire, which gives off a low-voltage shock, on the roof of the Brazos River Country exhibit, as well as installing a large balloon to discourage the birds from roosting, Cox said.
If the permits are approved, they also will decided how many birds can be removed, and whether they are relocated or euthanized humanely, Cox said.
"It will be nothing that will make an environmental impact," she said.
