Orangutans are the world’s largest tree-dwelling mammals. Males develop large cheek pads known as flanges when they are 15-20 years old.
Bornean Orangutans have broarder faces, shorter beards, and darker color compared to Sumatran Orangutans. Three subspecies are recognized, each localized to different parts of the island; Northwest Bornean, Northeast Bornean and Central Bornean Orangutans.
Orangutans are omnivores so they eat both plants, fruits, and insects but sometimes they also eat soil to obtain minerals for their diet.
