Orangutan Habitat

Orangutans are the largest arboreal mammal in the world. Their preferred habitat is low-lying peat-swamp forest - they are rarely found in habitats over an altitude of 800m.

 

Where Do Orangutans Live?

Although they are found on both Borneo & Sumatra, their ranges are very limited, as shown in the distribution map below:
