Sumatran orangutans are the largest non-human primates in Asia and the largest arboreal animal. Their bodies and faces are covered with fine, long red hairs. Males distinctively have large cheek pads that are covered in fine white hairs. Along with their unique color, orangutans have an enormous arm span and opposable thumbs. From finger tip to finger tip, the arm span is about 7 feet wide, which is longer than their standing height.
They also eat acorns, fruit, and corn. Their special stomachs allow them to eat some things humans cannot, such as mushrooms and poison ivy. Their diets vary by season according to availability of food sources. They also eat hay, grass, white clover, and other foods they can find in a farm yard.

Climate change had a heavy influence on nonhuman primate evolution. Modern primates live in areas with a warmer climate where forests tend grow thickly, mainly in the southern hemisphere. However primates used to have a much more diverse habitat, living in more areas of the world than they do today. This is directly a result of climate change which has forced primates to change habitats. Climate change also occurred multiple times between the origins of early primates and modern day primates however.
