Isn't he so cute!
Curious Baby Orangutan
Baby Orangutans normally get curios because they are new to the world and want to know more!
As you can see here, this Orangutan lives along low lands.
He is probably trying to spear some fish from the water!
Borneo orangutans have a smooth,long, orange/red/brown coat, and not much facial hair. Sumatran orangutans however, have a red/ginger coat, and heaps of facial hair. Both types of orangutans have small ears, very pale skin, and a large snout. They have a hand quite similar to a human. Females weigh 30 - 50 kilograms, and males weigh 50 - 90 kilograms. In length, they are 1.25-1.5 metres. Although both Orangutans have many different features, not many people can tell the difference between then when they are together. The Orangutan skeleton is similar to the human skeleton. Their hips, knees and ankle joints are very flexible. Orangutans feet and hands are designed so that they can hang on to branches easily. Currently, Orangutans are only found in Sumatra and Borneo while living in the wild, though fossils have been found in China, Malaysia, Java and Vietnam. Orangutans are kept in other places in zoos.
Although fruit comprises most of the Orangutans diet, they still require other nutrients as part of their daily intake. They receive a mixture of sugars and fats from fruit, carbohydrates from leaves, and protein from nuts.
