Description And Characteristics!! :)

There are only two speices of orangutans left sadly. The average height of an orangutan male is 1.4 m. It's averge weight is 200 pounds! They are almost twice the weight of a female! The average height of a female is 1.1 meters, and it's average weight is 82 pounds! Wow! The male is way heavier than the female!
The population of my orangutan is 69,000, and there are 7,500 left in the wild. Orangutans are endangered animals and 1,000 orangutans are killed each year. We can help orangutans by putting them in zoos. An orangutans lifespan is 35-45 years. Its scientific name is Pongo!
