#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.

  1. I remember that movie and the Orangatan. They look like smart animals. Like they’re watching you the way you’re watching them.

  2. I love this ape-they seem so gentle and unassuming and just want to be left alone. I love that movie but I heard the ape was not treated well by the owner and the ape died a few years after making the pictures-what a shame
