    About Orangutans

    2) How Do Orangutans Have Respiration?

    Orangutans breathe in a similar way to human. ie their respiratory system include airways, lungs, and the respiratory muscles.

    3) How Do Orangutans Remove Their Body Waste?(About Their Excretory System)

    Orangutans have a similar excretory system as human with component organs of Skin, Lungs, Kidneys, Ureter, Urinary bladder and Urethra

    4) How Do Orangutans Search For Food, Find Mates And Escape From Enemies And Natural Disasters?

    Orangutans are omnivores (they eat both plants and animals) but are mostly herbivorous (plants comprise most of their diet). They eat fruit (their favorite food), leaves, seeds, tree bark, plant bulbs, tender plant shoots, and flowers. They also eat insects and small animals (like birds and small mammals.)

    Orangutans are shy, solitary animals that are active during the day (they are diurnal). They live alone in large territories. This is probably due to their eating habits; they need a large area in order to get enough food and too many orangutans in one area might lead to starvation.

    The only long-lasting orangutan social group is the mother and offspring, who live together for about 7 years. When mating, the male and female orangutan stay together for only a few days
