Caption: Orang-utan (Pongo pygmaeus) grabbing a handful of grass. Orang-utans are solitary animals and it is only mothers and offspring that form any long-term bond. Of all the great apes, the orang-utan is the most distantly related to man. However, its name originates from the Malay meaning "forest man", probably because of its human-like face and behaviour. It is the only truly arboreal (tree- dwelling) great ape and is the largest tree- dwelling mammal, its long arms and great strength being adaptions for movement in trees. Orang- utans feed on fruits, flowers and leaves.
