Saw this cute Gibbon in the Phi Phi Islands, Thailand. His name was Peter and a local man owned him as a pet (illegally I assume) none the less this lovely guy was well looked after and it was amazing to hold and play with such an amazing creature free of charge!
Lar gibbons are threatened in various ways: they are sometimes hunted for their meat, sometimes a parent is killed in order to capture young animals for pets and the largest danger is the loss of habitat.
