Gibbon Walking A Tightrope
Forget monkey bars this gutsy gibbon clearly prefers the trickier task of the tightrope. The funky monkey looked footloose and fancy free as it strutted it stuff on a branch in Borneo – mimicking the movements of an acrobat. The Hylobates agilis, also known as the Black-Handed Gibbon or the lesser ape, captivated tourists with its agile antics. As it sprinted skilfully back and forth across a branch, wildlife photographer Thomas Marent, captured the entire comic episode on camera.
