Sad Brown Eyes ~ Explored

BBMaui. The orangutans are known for their intelligence, long arms and reddish-brown hair. Native to Indonesia and Malaysia, they are currently found only in rainforests on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. Orangutans spend nearly all of their time in the trees. They are more solitary than the other apes, with males and females generally coming together only to mate. Mothers stay with their babies until the offspring reach an age of six or seven years. Fully mature males can be distinguished by their prominent cheek flanges and longer hair (like the one in this photo).
