Male Orang

Orangs don't have a nose bridge and their nostrils face forward. An orang's nostrils are much closer to the eyes than to the mouth, your photo has them roughly midway between the eyes and mouth. The forehead looks too wide and flat and the horizontal creases look like a human. Even the facial expression looks unusually intense for an orangutan. Where did you find the photo Norse?

This Orang looked super Squatchy to me. Dunno why. Kinda shyly hugging the tree.

Great answer.  If not blurry then needs to be farther away and turned around.
