Gibbons are rare, small, slender, long-armed, tree-dwelling apes. These very acrobatic primates live in southeast Asia. Gibbons are arboreal; they spend most of their lives in trees. Because they are so dextrous while moving in the trees, almost no predators can catch them. There are nine species of gibbons, including the siamang, which is the largest and darkest gibbon. Because of the rapid deforestation of their habitats, gibbons are an endangered species. -

This macho black-faced gibbon is currently an occupant of Lok Kawi Zoo, located 10km South of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Check out the other animals under their care here.

He looks a little bit sad but maybe it's been a bad day, who knows.

Closer look at his macho face
