The orangutan, also known as the "man of the forest", are large, slothful animals that live on the island of Kuru and Panau. These apes possess great strength and mostly live in trees, swinging from branch to branch using their arms. Their bodies are large and bulky, with short, bowed legs and disproportionately long arms, and lack tail. They are mostly covered with long, reddish-brown hair. The males have a longish beard, and they sometimes develop warty protuberances on each side of the face. It never walks erect, unless when supporting itself by branches. They eat both plants and animals, especially fruit, seeds, tree bark and insects.
