Lois is standing up to celebrate World Chimpanzee Day!! 🦍
We saw him on @ourplanet representing orangutans and their jungle home. But today he wants everyone to remember that all great apes are endangered and need our help!

Orangutans and chimpanzees are similar in how highly intelligent they are, how they have individual personalities, how they are both closely related to humans, their diet ranging from fruits and leaves to termites and meat, their use of tools, and how they make nests to sleep in.
🦍
Orangutans differ from chimpanzees in that they are arboreal apes, rarely coming down to the forest floor. Chimpanzees are great climbers and spend a lot of time in the trees as well, but they often travel on the ground. Chimpanzees live in several countries in Africa whereas orangutans are found only on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo. Chimpanzees are also more social than the orangutans, who lead a more semi-solitary lifestyle. Swipe to the second photo showing this from @naturalistnatasha
