#AtoZChallenge – Orangutan

The orangutan is an exclusively Asian ape. They are currently only found in the Borneo and Sumatra rainforests.

The reddish-brown orangutan spends most of its time in trees and primarily eats fruit but other things like vegetation, bark, honey, insects and bird eggs are consumed.


Orangutans are highly intelligent and one featured as Clint Eastwood’s sidekick “Clyde” in the movie Every Which Way But Loose.
