Gibbon Gibbons have a pronounced and complete white face ring, white hands and feet and their color is variable from light buff to black. Their fur is very dense providing protection from the rain.
Gibbons live in the rainforests of Asia and they are fruit specialists with their favorite fruit being the fig. They drink by licking their fur after a storm or dipping an arm into a tree hole or rubbing it on wet leaves.
Gibbons' life span is 30-40 years and they can easily leap 30 feet between trees and form monogamous relationships. We must preserve the old growth rain forests so the gibbons will survive.
