The things that will come up, after hearing anything about monkeys or apes, will lead us to imagine for a moment that these are living creatures that run, jump, and rule the rainforest canopy referring to their agility. The conclusion that will be made, for those who prioritize effectiveness and efficiency, will say it is a waste of energy.
Orangutans could be recognized as an expert in conserving energy, study claims orangutan don’t jump like most arboreal mammals led by some evidence claiming orangutan save their energy to survive.
Jumping is another strategy used, but is only applied with the trees are stiff enough to jump easily and not use too much energy. “Heavier orangutans don’t jump, and we may have an explanation why.” Dr. Lewis Halsey says.
Expert opinions have come to one point labeling orangutans to be masters of conserving energy, definitely, this study’s finds cannot be separated from how orangutans survive.
“Creating a basic knowledge of the orangutan movement in Bukit Lawang which mostly occurred during the jungle trek for nearly 10 years, has drawn my attention to their feeding behavior. It shows how their daily routines are triggered by the available foods in their surroundings. The conclusion could be taken based on their day-spending styles, at one point showing they might be lazy apes, or it’s their genetics, both create more arguments.” Bobi Handoko.
