One of the tiniest monkeys is the white-gave gibbon. He swings on long arms and moves with a rare beauty across the highest branches of the trees.
Gibbons live in family groups made up of numerous adult animals and they are variously aged young. Each family is associated with a certain area of the timberland.
The gibbons’ “lounge area” is located in the upper branches of the trees. The ready products of wild figs are these critters’ favorite food.
Gibbon carefully examines each side of the natural product before selecting it to see if it is sufficiently delicate. It can reach the best twigs, where the most delicate leaves and buds are developing, thanks to their long arms.
Gibbons frequently add small creatures—basically spineless creatures—to their regular diet. They use their teeth to chew the tough bug shells and throw away the empty shell.
The noon hour is set aside for rest and routine fleece washing, and when dusk approaches, it’s the perfect time for supper.
Gibbons climb trees at dusk in search of a safe place to rest. Primates walk in a fixed position on the ground, resting on all of their toes as they go up heavy branches, securing them for loyalty.
