Gibbons are lesser apes (other apes are known as great apes), and like all apes have no tail. This species has white ring of fur on its face as well as white hands and feet. The rest of the body can vary from cream to black in colour.
Lar gibbons are found in forests throughout south-east Asia.
Lar gibbons live in small family groups of a male, female and their offspring. Lar gibbons have one baby at a time, which stays with its parents until it is about eight years old.
