Orangutans are dry-nosed primates that lives in trees on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo (Indonesia).
Orangutans Use Tools - Even in the Wild
Orangutans use tools to get food or protect themselves from rain. Even wild orangutans have been seen doing this.
They even saw wood and use hammers and nails. Orangutans don’t just understand how to do something, but also why.
Orangutans Cover up Their Food Thefts
Orangutans are very sneaky. When they live with humans, they secretly steal food.
But they’re very sneaky about it, removing everything that could point to their theft (e.g. scattered straw, leftover seeds). They think about the consequences of their actions.
