A Thoughtful Siamang
Photograph - Photography
Largest of all the gibbons, the endangered siamang is a lesser ape, not a monkey. They do not have a tail, whereas monkeys have tails of various lengths! Monogamous siamang couples inhabit the tropical forests of the Indonesian island of Sumatra and the Malay peninsula, where they swing hand over hand through the trees. The large inflatable throat sac is very noticeable during their daily singing duets which can be heard over a long distance.
