OrangutansOrangutans possess many adaptationsthat help them live successfully in theirhabitat. Orangutans spend almost all of their day in the tree canopy so it is no surprise that they have adapted to live in the trees. The arm length of an Orangutan is 7 feet which allows them to hang on to branches and support themselves. When Orangutans do come out of the trees and travel on the ground, they use a method of walking called "Fist Walking". This method is done by curling the thumb around their fist and as the name implies, walking on their fists. Orangutans can also use separate power & precision grips, and possess separate control of all their fingers.
