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.

"It's always a very sad occasion," said Terri Cox, curator for programs and exhibits at the zoo. "We give the keepers that took care of the animals time to be with them and say goodbye, just like you would if someone in your family was dying. These are animals that we've taken care of and given heart and soul to for many, many years."
But the location of the burial ground is not disclosed or accessible to the public.
Cox said unscrupulous scavengers could attempt to dig up the remains and sell the parts of endangered animals, like a rhino horn, for money on the black market.
"You just don't want to open it up for somebody to break into the zoo and dig up something," Cox said. "For us, that would be devastating."
While death is a natural, albeit unpleasant, part of animal care, Cox said the loss of life isn't a frequent occurrence.
"Zoos have come so far in veterinary medicine (that) we are facing, globally, a kind of new challenge of dealing with a lot of elderly animals and the problems that come with them," Cox said.
"They're welcome challenges, because what a success (it is) to have animals live a lot longer now in captivity than they normally would."
Cox noted that Julie probably would have been euthanized much earlier in life because of her deformity because there wasn't a lot of experience in treating her condition.
During her time at the zoo, staffers worked to get her custom-made shoes for her foot and also taught her how to display her deformed ankle so she wouldn't have to be tranquilized for physical examinations.
Cox said Sumatran tigress Maharani was taken off birth control, so with a little help from Mother Nature and the right sultry look from partner Kucing, two tiger cubs recently arrived. The zoo is having an online naming contest for the cubs.
And Bornean orangutan Mei, 13, is just a year shy of the recommended mating age. Pending a breeding recommendation, she could be clear to mate with sweetie KeraJaan next year.
"Most of the zoo animals are what we would call ambassadors for their wild counterparts who raise awareness for conservation for those species, so we don't breed indiscriminately,"
Cox said.
