Here’s  info about orangutans from Wikipedia:

Orangutans are the most arboreal of the great apes and spend most of their time in trees. Their hair is typically reddish-brown, instead of the brown or black hair typical of chimpanzees and gorillas. Males and females differ in size and appearance. Dominant adult males have distinctive cheek pads and produce long calls that attract females and intimidate rivals. Younger males do not have these characteristics and resemble adult females. Orangutans are the most solitary of the great apes, with social bonds occurring primarily between mothers and their dependent offspring, who stay together for the first two years. Fruit is the most important component of an orangutan’s diet; however, the apes will also eat vegetation, bark, honey, insects and even bird eggs. They can live over 30 years in both the wild and captivity.

Orangutans are among the most intelligent primates; they use a variety of sophisticated tools and construct elaborate sleeping nests each night from branches and foliage.

In the wild we don’t hang out with chimpanzees but the truth is I’m really a toy stuffed animal and in the backyard I hang out with my BFF Chimpy.

Chimpy – with BFF Orangy – double monkey business!

Animal ID: 1002
Age: 3 years
Species: Chimpanzee
Sex: Male
Location: Jungle Room

I’m Chimpy here with my BFF Orangy! We love to climb in trees and eat bananas. We are looking for a home with a lot of monkey business going on so that we can live naturally and in harmony with our family. We tend to get into mischief because even though we don’t have opposable thumbs, we do have hands. An experienced owner willing to teach us to read, write and do simple math would bring out the best in us. We love to play with other pets especially dogs. We love to pull their tails! Come on down at see us at the Monkey Environment in the AdoptMeApp Demo Shelter Jungle Room!
