Although much of primate research has focused on chimpanzees and gorillas, orangutans are among our closest relatives and in fact behave remarkably like us. In this eye-opening book, two experts on animal behavior explore these fascinating similarities, and, in the process, paint a compassionate picture of these endearing, intelligent animals. Includes photos and an Index.
