Siamang Gibbon

Symphalangus syndactylus


Siamang's are the largest of the lesser-apes, and twice the size of other gibbons. Thanks to their large throat sac (called a gular sac), their call can carry for more than 2 kilometers and is frequently heard while walking in the forests of the Kerinci Seblat National Park. Usually their singing starts around 8:30 or 9:00 in the morning and can last until midday.


Seen at the foot of Sumatra's Mt. Kerinci, the highest volcano in SE Asia, in the Kerinci Seblat National Park.
