The orangutan (Pongo) is a great ape that has fur with a color between red and brown. There are two species of orangutan. They are from Southeast Asia. There are very few of them left, because loss of the jungle has reduced their habitat. There are orangutans on view at Bali Safari and Marine park, check promo here!.The name orangutan comes from two Malay words, orang which means person, and hutan which means forest; so orangutan means person of the forest.
