Orangutans from Lion Country Safari

Lion Country Safari

Exotic Wildlife

Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus).  The orangutan is a tail-less primate with small ears and nose.  It is solitary, rarely descending to the ground.  The female and young form the only long-term bond.  The males do not fight among each other and do not display any territorial behavior.  It feeds on fruit, preferring figs, leaves, bark, shoots and flowers.
