Orang Utan (Pongo pygmaeu)

The average body mass for an adult male orang-utan is around 86 kilograms, and for the female it is around 38 kilograms. Pelage color ranges from reddish-orange to black. This species has a relatively short thumb. Males have flaps of fatty tissue on both sides of the face, and these develop in adulthood after the first mating.

The orang-utan is found in the countries of Brunei, Indonesia, and Malaysia on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo. This species lives in tropical primary rainforests, swamp forests, and montane forests up to 2000 meters.

Very well done, this is a nice portrait. The face (the skin around his eyes and the eyes themself) is a little dark though. Good closeup. TFS!

Very nice portrait Ari, I'd like to see a bit more of the shaded area on his face but it's a good shot nonetheless. Well done.

Wonderful capture Ari! The deepset shadows around this creatures eyes create a mystery that mankind has been trying to unravel for many years. Great composition, detail and mood. Thank you.
