I’m the greatest of great apes
And now I’ll tell you why:
I may just make a funny face
If you look me in the eye!

I make art;
I’m super smart;
Swing high up in the sky!
I build nests
So I can rest
But, if needed, I am spry!

My arms are long;
I’m very strong!
My body’s red and hairy
I can eat
Both fruits and meat
But tigers are real scary!

And if you meet this playful treat
I’m sure you’ll understand
That no great ape is half as great
As the Orangutan!
