White-Handed Gibbon

Hylobates lar

Like other gibbons, the white-handed gibbon is an expert at traveling in the trees. Arms that are longer than its legs allow the gibbon to cover a great distance—nearly 10 feet—with each pendulum swing of its body. Forward-facing eyes provide it with the binocular vision and depth perception necessary to determine a safe route.
