Monkey Shines by the Javan Gibbons

Antics abound including “monkey see, monkey do” scenes.  Very cute and very funny beings!

When researching gibbons, I saw over 20 species listed.  The Javan gibbons at the Greensboro Science Center hail from the rain forests of the island of Java, Indonesia.  Sadly, they, too, are on the endangered species list.  There was a thesis written in 2011 regarding the re-introducing these gibbons to the wild after being in captivity, but could not find any update since that report was documented.  Nevertheless, along with many other visitors that day, I was happy to watch them for awhile!

 

Just WOW!!!
