Example of Descriptive Text - Orangutan


The orangutan is a member of the ape family, and its name is derived from the Malay expression for "person of the forest." Orangutans have long, reddish-brown hair and mainly live in forests, making their homes in the tops of tall trees. They live mainly on fruits such as figs and durian, but also eat leaves, tree bark, nuts, termites, and insects. While other apes make their habitats in Africa, the orangutan can only be found in Sumatra and Borneo in Southeast Asia. The orangutan is currently designated as an endangered species due to rapid depletion of Southeast Asian rainforests.
