Unlike most other great apes, orangutans spend nearly all of their time in trees. There are only two known species, both of which are found only in the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra. They are very intelligent, and can learn sign language as well as how to use tools.

  • Characteristics: Hand painted for true-to-life accuracy and molded by professionals, our nature figurines bring even the most exotic wildlife into your home. While other great apes are far more social than orangutans, we’re sure this fellow would make some time for you!
  • Size and Color: 4.25 inches long and 2.5 inches tall, this model is an inch longer than a deck of cards stood on its side. Unlike chimpanzees and gorillas, which have dark black hair, orangutan’s hair is a mix of orange and reddish-brown colors, while their faces are a dark hickory.

History

Studied extensively for their knowledge and learning capabilities, orangutans have showed an ability to master sophisticated tools, solve puzzles, and communicate through a basic form of sign language. Some researchers even believe different populations of wild orangutans have unique and distinct cultures. Unfortunately, the Bornean species of orangutan is endangered while the Sumatran species is critically endangered, both of which are suffering from a loss of their natural habitat from large-scale logging. Although they are known to be fairly solitary, this amazing ape will warm up to you in no time!
