Gibbons Are Apes That Could Not Climb Up The Tree Of Evolution To Great Heights

Gibbons are apes found in the tropical rain forests of South East Asia. Gibbons are closely related with humans by virtue of the phenomenon of evolution. Virtually, they are monkeys that can acquire a height of 90 cm and a weight of 7 kg. The deficit in weight is an indication that gibbons are free to move around the trees.

Gibbons are also found in the jungles of north India and Indonesia. More than 10 different species of gibbons are believed to thrive in these places. Individual members of these different species differ in terms of their colors. Individuals from different species are in different colors. This way, there are grey gibbons, and brown gibbons and black gibbons too. There are white markings on the faces of some species of gibbons.

Gibbons live on trees. To help them in this endeavor, they are gifted with long arms. Trees provide gibbons shelter and protection from its natural enemies and they also provide gibbons with all the nutritious fruits they are going to require. Gibbons use their long arms in swinging across trees and also for balancing while walking. Gibbons don't have a tail.

Gibbons are omnivorous in nature. Their diet chiefly comprises of ripe fruit which they get from trees. They are also known to enjoy insects and eggs. Other birds and reptiles are also a significant part of their diet.

Gibbons don't have many natural predators because they can easily find shelter in the trees. But leopards and big snakes often find gibbons as an easy target.
