Hoolock Gibbon (Female)

Hoolock

Description:

Hoolocks are the second largest of the gibbons, after the Siamang. They reach a size of 60 to 90 cm and weigh 6 to 9 kg. The sexes are about the same size, but they differ considerably in coloration: males are black colored with remarkable white brows, while females have a grey-brown fur, which is darker at the chest and neck. White rings around the eyes and around the mouth give their face a mask-like appearance. The range of the hoolocks is the most northwestern of all the gibbons, extending from North-East India, to Myanmar.

Thanks, Satyan.. They are always high up in the canopies which make it more difficult to photograph..
