This is an unique video, I am indonesian but I had never seen like this before.

I only see orang-utan in movies never in the real life although I'd love to. After watching this video I wondered what is the difference between apes and monkeys and here what I found: Apes don't have a tail while monkeys do.
Apes tend to be larger in size and have a larger brains than monkeys.
Apes live longer than monkeys.
however what I found very interesting for me is that both apes and monkies can move among trees by a f=different ways so, monkeys uses their four limbs like cats and dogs, while apes using only their arms so they are more like humans or we're more like them, if we put in our consideration Darwen theory which stated that humans are driven from apes..not monkeys.
the last thing I want to mention is the communication, monkeys can communicate with each other while apes can use sign and body language to communicate with people they also can solve problems in their environment.

I m crazy about animals. It was my favorite topic. The information was interesting too

Although monkeys aren't my favourite animal I find the clip about orang-utans interesting. I saw monkeys but no orang-utans. I always enjoy watching reports animals

I don,t have comment.
