Caption

White-handed gibbon. White-handed gibbon (Hylobates lar) brachiating. Brachiation is the name given to this swinging mode of locomotion. This gibbon is native to the rainforests of south- eastern Asia. This gibbon is extremely agile, and can make abrupt turns at full speed, stop in an instant and leap up to twelve metres over clearings and rivers. The white-handed gibbon lives in family groups consisting of a male, one or two females and their young. It very rarely eats meat, preferring fruits, flowers and leaves. Families sleep together at night in a favourite tree.
