The Gibbon Monkey
Gibbons are not monkeys although they do resemble monkeys in
some ways. Gibbons are actually apes and a part of the
scientific classification of the family Hylobatidae. The
family is divided based on the diploid chromosome number
into four genera: Hoolock, Hylobates, Nomascus and the
There was another genus known as the Bunopithecus that was
said to be closely related to the Hoolock Gibbon but sadly
it is now extinct. Gibbons are subtropical and tropical
animals and they are found in the rainforests of Borneo,
China, India, Indonesia, Java and Sumatra.
The fur of the Gibbon is usually brownish, gray or black and
they have white markings usually on their face, hands and
feet. The fur of the Gibbon varies between genders and
species of Gibbon. They can be white to black although it is
very rare to see a white Gibbon.
Gibbons live in trees and use brachiation, or swinging from
tree limb to tree limb, as their main mode of
transportation. They can travel up to fifty feet at thirty-
five miles per hour. They can also leap up to twenty-seven
feet through the air!
They are probably the most agile and fastest of all non-
flying mammals and tree dwellers. They walk bipedally and
use their raised arms for balance. Their feet and hands are
long and there is a deep cleft between the first and second
fingers on their hands.
Gibbons are known as the lesser apes because they are
smaller and usually pair-bond. They do not make nests like
the great apes and there are some anatomical differences
that make them seem like they should be a monkey rather than
Another thing that sets the Gibbon apart from most apes and
other tree dwelling mammals is that it has a ball and socket
joint as its wrist joint. This creates biaxial movement and
takes a lot of the strain from swinging from branch to
branch off of the chest and shoulder.
