These animals can live in various forest types, ranging from forest hills and plains, watersheds, freshwater swamp forests, peat swamp, dry land in the mangrove swamps and palm, to the mountain forests. Most of Orang Utan eats plants, although this animals is categorized as omnivores.
At present, Orang Utan is almost extinct. In addition to increasing their habitats threatened by the existence of humans, Orang Utan, especially the Orang Utan babies are often sold by the hunters to be as pets. However, the more parties have attention to save these cute animals from extinction.
