Our Plastic Gibbon
This engaging-looking plastic gibbon replica is made of solid plastic and stands on a branch. It is 2 inches tall. The color is somewhat imaginative, but has distinctive highlights. Our gibbon miniature has a concerned expression but promises not to bite. This gibbon replica makes an interesting pet or gift and fits nicely into a shoebox diorama for a school project. Check out our other Siamang toys and gifts.
Gibbons are a well-known species of lesser apes. They are found primarily in southeast Asia. The most well-known gibbon is the siamang. The siamang has fused digits and a large bulbous throat sac designed for singing. Gibbons are arboreal and are amazing brachiators, namely they swing through trees, which may be as much as 50 feet apart and and at speeds up to 35mph. The gibbons make wonderful zoo exhibits. Gibbons live in small family groups of a monogomous pair and several off-spring. They also can walk upright on the ground. According to the Gibbon Center ,"... they are referred to as the "songbirds" of the primate family and the most musical land mammal, gibbons can project their voices up to 2 miles through the dense rainforest canopy. Unfortunately, their natural habitat is being destroyed at the alarming rate of 32 acres per minute!"
