White-handed Gibbon | Hylobates Lar
The white-handed gibbon or Lar is a primate species of the gibbon family. They are currently classified as endangered with population decreasing! They are particularly fast and maneuverable and can jump up to 14 meters high in the air! Gibbons are very alert, easily excitable animals whose keen eyes and ears do not miss anything that happens around them, even when they seem to be asleep! They live in small groups and hold a strong family bond. In the early hours of the morning and at noon, you can hear their happy shouts through the whole Serengeti Park: Our white-handed gibbons mark their territory in this way. In the wild you will find white-handed gibbons in the forests of Southeast Asia. These animals are 80 inches tall with a weight of up to eight kilograms. The coat is mostly black-gray, but there are also light-brown animals.
