An orangutan roams an enclosure in Ragunan zoo in Jakarta on January 27, 2011. Orangutans are far more genetically diverse than thought, a finding that could help their survival, say scientists delivering their full DNA analysis of the critically endangered ape. The study, published January 27 in the science journal Nature, also reveals that the orangutan -- “the man of the forest” -- has hardly evolved over the past 15 million years, in sharp contrast to Homo sapiens and his closest cousin, the chimpanzee.

    I'd say we need to look up to him for he probably treats his brethren much more lovingly than we do..

    He is our closest cousin and we need to look after him. It is a very beautiful and gentle one.

    Man of the Forrest is the actual meaning of Orangutan. But he appears to be equally at home on a grassy hill. Good for you MOF!
