Penguin here.

I think this is the first time we’ve posted a gibbon on ACAD. Gibbons are not monkeys. They are lesser apes and are actually native to Asia. They are tailless and move about by swinging from branch to branch, or walking on 2 feet using their arms for balance. You can read about all this and more on Wikipedia’s Gibbon article.
