AUDUBON NATURE INSTITUE
Berani, a ten year old Sumatran Orangutan seems to be enjoying the mild temperatres at his home in the Audubon Nature Institute, in New Orleans on September 3, 2003. Orangutans are large, red-haired animals with four hands. They are members of a group called the Great Apes. They are different than monkeys because they have no tail. The word orangutan translates as "Person of the Forest" in Malay and Indonesian. Orangutans are very similar to humans. They share 96.4% of our genes. The Great Apes are humankind's closest living relatives. (UPI / A.J. Sisco)
