The Orangutan is a fascinating creature that is unfortunately in danger of becoming extinct.
They are the largest tree-climbing mammal in the world and can be found in the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia.
They have reddish-brown fur, long arms, and a protruding belly. They are very intelligent and can learn to use tools.
Orangutans live in social groups called troops, which can have up to 50 members. They are the only ape that lives in trees full-time.
Orangutans eat mostly fruit, but will also eat leaves, flowers, insects, and other small animals. Unfortunately, due to deforestation and poaching, Orangutans are now considered critically endangered. We must do our best to protect these amazing creatures!
