Gibbon is the smallest ape in the world. Its height is up to 65 cm whereas its weight is up to 6.7 kg. Normally, the apes are large animals having bulky body and big size but Gibbons are an exception. Gibbons are found in tropical and subtropical rainforests from northeast India to Indonesia and north to southern China, including the islands of Sumatra, Borneo and Java. This worlds smallest ape is the master of the art of locomotion, brachiation, swinging from one branch to another with an amazing speed of 56 km/h. Their sharp movement is also because of their comparatively small and smart body as compared to other ape species.
Gibbons are really interesting apes, their quick and agile movement keeps them away from predators as the hunter can not catch them. They spend most of their time on trees and rarely roam on earth is surface even they sleep on trees while sitting upright. Another interesting thing about Gibbons is that they are very social and cooperative by nature. Gibbons nurture their offspring very carefully and transfer their good habits to their babies. Normally, a male is smaller in size than a female which gives birth to one baby at a time. This baby clings to the mothers hair right after the birth.
