The Orang-Utan (Pongo) belongs to the family of great apes and are domesticated on the Indonesian islands of Borneo and Sumatra. One differs between the Sumatra- and Borneo-Orang-Utan. Both species belong to the group of endangered animals.

The name "Orang-Utan" means as much as "man of the forest" and is derived from the Malay words "Orang" (human) und "Utan" (Forest). Regarding Alfred Brehm's book "The Animals of the World. Brehm's Life of Animal" the Javanese say that these apes are able to speak if they would; but they don't to it being afraid that they would have to work.

Satu, our Orang-Uutan, also does not like to work. He loves it cosy and much appreciates companionship by others. Take a deep look into his eyes and listen well what he's telling. Maybe he tells about his home, about the forests when climbing in the trees, and about the other animals living there. Or  ...
