today’s primate of the day is the sumatran orangutan! the sumatran orangutan is one of the three subspecies of orangutan and, as its namesake implies, is found in northern sumatra! this species is almost exclusively arboreal, and bonds between sumatran orangutans are noted to be quite close! this is predicted to be because of the large amount of fruit on fig trees, where the sumatran orangutans will commune and socialize while they feed. sumatran orangutans are very important to seed dispersal, and are critical to the ecosystem! they are absolutely wonderful apes all in all!
