Orang Hutan is translated from Malay as a “forest man”. In the XVIII century they started to be brought from their native lands, Sumatra and Borneo, to Europe. Today their muzzles can be seen in Moscow too…
What a serious guy!
Their hair is almost 0,5 m long! In fact they live in bog forests or on tree tops and do not like to come down…
These creatures are amazing and very cute. Such a parody of a human being!
Besides it is very interesting to watch how they behave and communicate with each other, how mom takes care of a son, how a couple can be in love.. Truly like people!
Male and female orangutans meet in wild nature only for some time, to make “a marriage union”. A male produces various sounds – from quiet to loud – to attract a female. As opposed to other apes, orangutans live alone or in a couple. But sometimes it happens that two females with babies can live with one male forming such a family group. Territory of such a male orangutan occupies not more than 6 m2 where the group lives and eats. To be full they have to constantly search for food. But here, in the Zoo, a male can afford to get such a big paunch!
Babies grow and by the age of 7-8 they can become parents themselves.
This is not mature yet
