Friday, 12 July 2013


How are the text different?

The nat geo text is more on specific feature and their habitat of the orang-utans of the wild , while the zoo text is more on advertising the zoo , little about the orang-utans more on the different advertising of the activities with the orang-utans .

What are some example of information you can find on the nat geo webpage but not on the singapore webpage?
the meaning of the word orang-utan:
The Malay word orang-utan means "person of the forest." These long-haired, orangish primates, found only in Sumatra and Borneo, are highly intelligent and are close relatives of humans.

Their body feature:
Orangutans have an enormous arm span. A male may stretch his arms some 7 feet (2 meters) from fingertip to fingertip—a reach considerably longer than his standing height of about 5 feet (1.5 meters). When orangutans do stand, their hands nearly touch the ground.

Which report appeals to you more, why?

The nat geo report appeals to me more as it has a picture on it , as well as the information of the orang-utan and it habitat .
