Orangutan Mom & Little Girl by Helene Hoffman
Orangutan mom Indah and her little girl Aisha enjoy the morning sun. Orangutans, whose name means “people of the forest,” live in tropical and swamp forests on the Southeast Asian islands of Borneo and Sumatra. These shaggy red apes are the largest arboreal mammal and the only great ape found in Asia. The other great apes—gorillas, chimpanzees, and bonobos—are all native to Africa.
