Orangutans have a human like face, the coat is long and coarse, it varies in color from red to orange and chocolate.
At night they build a platform style nest out of branches 40 to 50 feet above the ground. They can live up to 45 years in the wild and up to 50 in captivity. Orangutans weigh up to 220 pounds and grow up to 5 feet tall. Not only are they smart, orangutans have excellent hearing and color vision.
