Shaggy, orange-haired orangutans live in tropical rain forests. They spend most of their time high in the trees, often pulling themselves along branches with long, powerful arms. Their hands and feet (lower left) grasp branches and vines. Young orangutans travel with their mothers for up to seven years (lower right).
