White-handed Gibbon


The Hylobatidae family consists of the gibbons and siamangs. There are 11 species in this family and they are found in Southeastern Asia. They are medium size apes and lack tails. They have long arms and move primarily by brachiation (swinging from branch to branch.) Members of this family are monogamousWhat does monogamous mean? and live in groups that contain the mated pair and their juvenile offspring. They are territorial and mark their territory partly by vocalization. To aid in this, some of the members of this family have a throat sac that can act as a resonator.
