Bornean Orangutan

The Bornean Orangutan is one of two extant Orangutan species in the world. It is the third largest primate (after Gorillas) and is the largest primarily tree-dwelling animal in the world. Males are substantially larger than females, and average at around 165lbs.

Bornean Orangutans are largely solitary. A handful might live within a small range but they will seldom interact with one another. Males and females only meet up to breed, which happens only once every several years. A young Orangutan will stay with it's mother for about five years, and the females tend to go about eight years between births. That is the longest interim period of any animal!

Sadly, the Bornean Orangutans are in a lot of trouble. They need large forests in order to thrive, and deforestation and habitat degradation has left many homeless. They are also hunted for meat and for traditional medicines. Conservation areas are being established to help these guys in the wild, and it is believed that there are around 50,000 left in the wild.

  10. This post could be seen as me trying to promote some spell caster, well, yes you can say that. However, this is me just trying to get everyone informed about how Dr Herbal Sango saved my Maltese Poodie's life. Sally(19months old), as I often call her got ill from food poisoning earlier this year and had found it very difficult to regain full health since then. Visited several veterinaries and petshops and day-by-day, I kept losing Sally. She became so lean and would hardly eat despite all medical treatments. It was very hard for me to accept that as Sally's fate so I decided to find magical help. I just wanted to keep giving my all till either Sally is saved or lost. As with almost everyone, I got scammed severally, more than 4 times (2 spell casters from South Africa and 2 others from Nigeria).

    In June, I came across a testimonial on an health blog about how someone got healed from Herpes. That was hard to believe but desperation can take you anywhere. I contacted Dr Herbal Sango and told him about the health issues my dog was faced with and he assured me that my dog will go through pain no more. Here is the thing, I will tell everyone this, as long as it is health related, I can vouch for this man. I never thought the medicine would be actually shipped to me. Every story I have read on the internet made me believe once the spell caster talks about shipping and shipping costs, that is a damn red flag. It was for me too but at times desperation won't make you see it as a red flag. I have my receipts of payment intact, and the shipping waybill from Dr Herbal Sango. In less than 2weeks, Sally got fully healed, eats very fine and it is very good now to say my Sally has fully recovered. This drug prepared by Dr Herbal Sango is to also not make her fall sick for a long time. For $309, Dr Herbal Sango has given Sally a new life, and given me a new hope as well. This is not compulsory for you to believe, but it was necessary for me to post. you can contact him here as sango101@rediffmail.com Thank You Dr Herbal Sango!!!
