Swingin’ in the rain
Javan gibbons live in the rain forest regions of Java, which is an island in Indonesia. At the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, you’ll find the Javan Gibbon in the Indonesian Rain Forest. Makes sense, huh?
What helps them get around?
Like all gibbons, Javan gibbons have very long forelimbs, long fingers and shorter thumbs which make them great brachiators. That means they swing between branches in trees.
They’re so fluffy!!!
Javan Gibbons have a fluffy appearance because of their very dense and long silvery-grey fur.
It’s a family thing
Family groups are made up of a male and female and up to three juvenile offspring.
