A lot of people think that the Orangutans are not important,but they are. Orangutans have a unique lifestyle and cool adaptations. A lot of people are trying to fight for their lives.
Orangutans are omnivores which means they consume meats and plants. But Orangutans love to consume fruits,it makes up to 90% of the Orangutans diet. Orangutans consume at minimum of 317 different types of food items that include bark,insects,honey,bird eggs,shoots and young leaves.

Orangutans live a more lonely lifestyle then mostly any other ape. Most socialization happens between two adult females and their dependent and young infants. Males and teenagers most of the time like to live alone. Orangutan communities are made up of resident and transient wandering individuals of both genders. Resident females live with their offspring in their defined homes areas that overlap with other adult females and their offspring,which could be their soon relatives. One to several female home areas are surrounded within the home area of a male resident,who is their main mating partner.

Orangutans have adapted to have reddish brown hair color so they survive longer in the forest,and also for a better forest environment. Their eyes are dark brown to help protect their big eyes from the blinding sunlight. The orangutan has adapted to have a seven and a half foot arm span so they can grasp on a lot more things. Orangutans have also adapted to have a big toe so they can hold onto things.

Orangutans like to live in the rainforest because it’s big trees cover them from the blinding sun. Orangutans also like to live on the island of Borneo because it supplies the food and environment that they need.Southern Asia is a good place for the Orangutans because it is the perfect temperature for them.

Orangutans are not the most social animals in the animal kingdom. The adult male Orangutan are the more solitary adult as they play absolutely no role in their babies life.
