name of the genus, Pongo, comes from a 16th century account
by Andrew Battell, an English sailor held prisoner by the
Portuguese in Angola, which describes two anthropoid "monsters"
named Pongo and Engeco. It is now believed that he was describing
gorillas, but in the late 18th century it was believed that
all great apes were orangutans; hence Lacépède's
use of Pongo for the genus.
are the most arboreal of the great apes, spending nearly
all of their time in the trees. Every night they fashion
nests, in which they sleep, from branches and foliage. They
are more solitary than the other apes, with males and females
generally coming together only to mate. Mothers stay with
their babies until the offspring reach an age of six or
seven years. There is significant sexual dimorphism between
females and males: females can grow to around 4 ft 2 in
or 127 centimeters and weigh around 100 lbs or 45 kg, while
flanged adult males can reach 5 ft 9 in or 175 centimetres
in height and weigh over 260 lbs or 118 kg.
