Bornean orangutan; a critically endangered hominoid

Lineage: Eukaryota[14874]; Metazoa[7440]; Chordata[3450]; Craniata[3416]; Vertebrata[3416]; Euteleostomi[3374]; Mammalia[867]; Eutheria[693]; Euarchontoglires[337]; Primates[190]; Haplorrhini[138]; Catarrhini[64]; Hominidae[7]; Pongo[2]; Pongo pygmaeus[1]
The two former subspecies of orangutan, Bornean Pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus and Sumatran P. pygmaeus abelii, have recently been promoted to distinct Sumatran (P. abelii) and Bornean (P. pygmaeus) orangutan species. Orangutans are critically endangered primates whose populations have decreased by nearly ninety percent in the More...
