  Southern White-cheeked Gibbon

 

PREVIOUS APE NEXT APE Vietnam

The adult male Southern White-cheeked Gibbon is overall black with a prominent tuft and distinct white patches on the lower cheeks, and which reach only half way to the ears and to the edges of the lips. This is different from the Northern White-cheeked Gibbon (fig.), in which the white cheek-patches reach to the upper borders of the ears and do not touch the corners of the mouth.
