You might know them from their long arms and unique colored hair. We’re talking about the tree dwelling great apes of Southeast Asia … Orangutans! Hosts Ebone and Rick reveal how this species got its name that is often mispronounced. The duo explains how to tell the difference between the different types of orangutans, the unique closeness they have with their mothers, and how the rate of reproduction and deforestation are contributing to a lower number in the population. Tanya Howard, a Senior Wildlife Care Specialist with San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance, joins Amazing Wildlife to tell us about her role in caring for these primates.
