Orangutan Veterinary Aid are featured in the 'Guardians of The Future' part of the exhibit. 

We are delighted to announce that the winner of the competition is :-

             Ben Huggins!

Answers:

1] What does the name orangutan mean? ................. "Man of the Forest"

2] Where are the only two places in the world that you still find orangutan living in the wild?

Borneo & Sumatra

3] What is the one difference between apes and all monkeys?

Trick question - most people say only apes have no tails but Barbary Macaques - sometimes referred to as Barbary Apes are actually monkeys that, like an ape, also have no tail. 

The actual answer if we are being pedantic, is that the lower molar teeth of apes (and humans) have five cusps, or raised points, on their grinding surfaces. This is known as a Y-5 pattern because the area between the cusps roughly is in the shape of the letter Y.

All monkeys only have four cusps on their lower molars and so are different from apes.

Thank you and congratulations to everyone who entered - we are just sorry that there can be only one winner.
