Earth Day 2010 Malaysian Lar Gibbon {White-handed Gibbon}

Malaysian Lar Gibbon {White-handed Gibbon}

The gibbons are the fastest and most agile of all tree-dwelling, non-flying mammals. They are masters of brachiation, swinging from branch to branch for distances of up to 15 m (50 ft), at speeds as high as 56 km/h (35 mph). They can also make leaps of up to 8 m (27 ft), and walk bipedally with their arms raised for balance. Wikipedia – Lar Gibbon
