Orang­utans live on only two islands, Borneo and northern Sumatra. They are a relic species. At the end of the Pleis­tocene period some 12,000 years ago, their range was much wider, en­com­pass­ing southern China, In­dochi­na, Java and southern Sumatra. The species is now extinct in all these regions.
