Since we cannot speak their languages, we make the wrong and arrogant assumption that they have no language and therefore, do not speak.

Orangutans are one of my favorite species for their innate kindness and their beauty. During my imaginary trips to a better, kinder world I play a game where another species won top notch during evolution . In my game Orangutans win the Kings and Queens slot in this beautiful planet.
