Facts of Interest: Orangutans are native to the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra. There are three orangutan species (Bornean, Sumatran, and Tapanuli orangutans) and all are considered critically endangered. They are the largest arboreal (tree dwelling) mammal. Long, powerful arms and grasping hands and feet allow them to move through the branches. They use a variety of sophisticated tools and construct elaborate sleeping nests each night from branches and foliage. They are solitary apes, but mothers remain with their young for 2 years.
