PREVIOUS APE NEXT APE Thailand

The Pileated Gibbon is a kind of gibbon, which is also known as Crowned Gibbon. Whereas males are black with a white ring around the face, females are creamy white-grey with a blackish belly and head.

 

Males have a ring of bristly hair around the crown, which sometimes, depending on the light, appears to be greyish, whilst females have rather long shaggy hair on the sides and back of the head (fig.). See also List of Thai Animal Names.
