Orangutans and humans share 98% of their DNA.
Don't they like Orangutans?
Orangutans have 32 teeth, the same as humans.
The Orangutan Research and Conservation Program.
The Orangutan is a magnificent creature, they should be saved.
But Orangutans are discriminating about people and Romeo trusted the Dutchman instantly.
I said to him that the orangutan could bite his hand off.
Reportedly, if four baby Orangutans are captured then at least three are killed.
Don't think that you can force a big male orangutan to be fingerprinted.
When you do the orangutan crawl, you won't feel like you're working out.
A modern enclosure for Orangutans, was restored besides a restaurant and office rooms in 2009.
One orangutan was watching Geerdink with curiosity
and then had come to look into his eyes.
Humans are not like male Orangutans whose home life is made up mainly of one-night stands.
Sadly, although Orangutans in captivity can live up to 60 years,
Ken, only made it to 29.
first, 66% of respondents thought chimpanzees were endangered(compared with 95% for gorillas, and 91% for Orangutans).
Chimpanzees, gorillas, and Orangutans show laughter-like vocalizations in response to physical contact,
such as wrestling, play-chasing, or tickling.
On May 29, 2019, India's only orangutan, Binny died at Odisha's Nandankanan Zoological

Chimpanzees are better suited for walking than Orangutans, because the chimp's feet have broader soles and shorter toes.
(Sumatra Orangutans don't have whirls in their fingerprints like human beings,

first, 66 percent of respondents thought chimpanzees were endangered(compared with 95 percent for gorillas, and 91 percent for Orangutans).
I met the Dutchman Jan Geerdink on the island of Sulawesi, in Indonesia, this summer,
while he was fingerprinting 600 Orangutans.
The forest is especially unique because it is the only region where elephants,
tigers, Orangutans, and rhinos are found living together.
Surviving Orangutans probably modified their behaviour to counter this threat,
perhaps retreating further into the thickest forests to avoid human hunters.
This is especially important given that most Orangutans today do not live in protected forests,
but in areas open to human use.
The research consisted of taking microphotographs of the hairs and
comparing them with hairs from known animals such as bears and Orangutans.
