Bornean Orangutan is a Primate Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.

Appearance

Bornean Orangutan has brown and straigh long her hair that reaches her heels and has a cutted frange to eyebrown level. Her skin is pale and her eyes brownish, by her expression and her smile we can see Bornean Orangutan as a calmful friend or wise. She owns green and oval earrings which looks like leaves. She wears a brown poncho decorated with small green beads with a large rolled-up collar attached in two piece by a paperclip. Judging her white cuffs, she may wears a white shirt hidden in the poncho. She wears a very short circular skirt with pressed-in ridges and double-Fringe Booties.

In Real Life

The Bornean orangutan is a species of orangutan native to the island of Borneo. Together with the Sumatran orangutan, it belongs to the only genus of great apes native to Asia. Like the other great apes, orangutans are highly intelligent, displaying advanced tool use and distinct cultural patterns in the wild. Orangutans share approximately 97% of their DNA with humans.

Bornean orangutans have orange-red hair and long arms, which are advantageous for traveling through the canopy. Bornean orangutans grasp with both their feet and hands, which suites their arboreal life. Both sexes have throat pouches for calling but the male’s throat pouches are larger than the females.

Orangutans primarily eat ripe fruit, along with young leaves, bark, flowers, honey, insects, vines, and the inner shoots of plants. One of their preferred foods is the fruit of the durian tree, which has a very strong smell and tastes somewhat like sweet, cheesy, garlic custard.

Orangutans on both islands primarily inhabit peat swamp forests, tropical heath forests, and mixed dipterocarp forests at altitudes of less than 1,000 meters (3,281 feet) above sea level. Orangutan population density has been shown to correlate positively with the level of fruit availability. This means that in forests where a higher abundance of fruit and fewer or less drastic periods of seasonal fruit shortages occur, orangutans are found to live at much higher densities than in other forests.

Bornean orangutans are diurnal and rarely come down from the trees. Small groups of females may travel with their infants in search of food, but adult males are usually solitary. While all Bornean orangutans are generally solitary they may have occasional social connections. Bornean orangutans use multiple methods of locomotion. Brachiation is only seen in young orangutans whereas older orangutans walk quadrupedally, or occasionally bipedally. Bornean orangutans sleep in nest platforms made of vegetation 40 to 60 feet off the ground.

The two major reasons why most Bornean Orangutans populations are in sharp decline are destruction, degradation and fragmentation of their habitats, and hunting. Recurrent forest fires, especially in peat forests, cause additional sharp declines about once every decade.

Trivia

  • Orangutans’ arms stretch out longer than their bodies – up to 8 ft. from fingertip to fingertip in the case of very large males.
  • From the age of thirteen years (usually in captivity) past the age of thirty, males may develop flanges and large size.
  • Orangutans have tremendous strength, which enables them to brachiate and hang upside-down from branches for long periods of time to retrieve fruit and eat young leaves.
