The world's oldest known Sumatran orangutan has died in an Australian Zoo age 62, leaving behind 54 descendants.
Puan, described as the grand old lady of Perth Zoo, was euthanized on Monday due to age related complications.
She had been at the zoo since 1968, and was officially recognised by Guinness World Records as the oldest of her species in 2016.
A critically endangered species, Sumatran orangutans rarely reach the age of 50 in the wild, the zoos said.
