Gibbon Video Gallery
This section offers video clips of various gibbon behaviours.
I have video material of only few species, and I would be happy to receive short clips from the visitors of this website (preferrentially MOV or another QuickTime-compatible format).
Clips of under-represented gibbon species or under-represented behaviours are especially needed. Gibbons are highly individualistic in their behaviour, and with every gibbon , can observe something new. In addition, the mental capacities of gibbons are largely unknown and clips providing evidence for gibbon cognition, insightful behaviour or tool use would be particularly welcome.
I would like to express my gratitude to the colleagues who kindly donated some of the clips presented here:
