The Inspiration

From the Animal Series inspired by a trip to the San Diego Zoo with my daughter. Returning after several to the zoo, I felt it was time to continue the animal series. The animal series is not limited to wild animals, but all those that roam the earth.

Quick Note

Orangutans are the most arboreal of the great apes and spend most of their time in trees. 

Orangutans are among the most intelligent primates; they use a variety of sophisticated tools and construct elaborate sleeping nests each night from branches and foliage. 

Orangutans are among the most intelligent non-human primates. Captive orangutans may use objects in creative ways.

Conservation Status
