There are four kinds of great apes: gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans. Only the orangutan comes from Asia; the others all come from Africa.
Bonobos and people share 98.4% of the same genetic make-up (DNA).
The Bonobo has highly individuated facial features, as humans do, so that one individual can look significantly different from another.
Chimpanzees and people share 98.7% of the same genetic make-up (DNA).
Chimpanzees usually walk on all four limbs, although they can walk upright for short distances.
To show anger, a gorilla curls its fingers.
Gorillas, the largest of the living primates, are ground-dwelling omnivores that inhabit the forests of Africa.
Gorillas knuckle-walk using both their legs and their long arms (putting pressure on their knuckles, with the fingers rolled into the hand). Gorillas rarely walk using only their legs.
Indigenous peoples of Indonesia and Malaysia call this ape “Orang Hutan” literally translating into English as “People of the Forest.”
Orangutans share 97% of the same DNA as humans.
Orangutans are very graceful and agile while climbing through the trees but somewhat slow and awkward when walking on the ground.
