Siamang is the largest and heaviest species of gibbon.
Inhabit the gibbons in Southeast Asia.
Pumping on their hands from branch to branch, gibbons can be overcome in one jump of 3 meters at a speed of 16 km / h.
Unlike other monkeys, on the ground gibbons move on two legs.
Gibbons are monogamous.
Gibbons do not have mating seasons.
Gibbons choose their partners only to their own taste, which is why sometimes males and females can ignore each other.
Gibbons feed on leaves and fruits (they can also eat insects, bird eggs and small vertebrates).
In nature, gibbons live about – 25 years, in captivity – 50 years.
Gibbons move with the help of “brachyce” (the way of moving from one branch of the tree to another), only gibbons and arachnids have full “brachy”, in some cases gibbons move faster along branches than a man running on the ground, and their jumps can reach in a length of 10 meters.
