orangutan definition and meaning

What is an "orangutan"?

Orangutans are large primates native to the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra. They are known for their distinctive reddish-brown fur, long arms, and powerful builds. Orangutans are highly intelligent and are considered one of the closest relatives to humans, sharing up to 97% of their DNA with humans. They are primarily arboreal, spending most of their time in trees, and are known for their remarkable ability to swing and climb through the forest canopy. Orangutans are solitary animals, with males being significantly larger than females, and they are known for their slow and deliberate movements. They primarily feed on fruits, leaves, and insects.
