A Siamang Flies through the Air

A Siamang Flies through the Air

A siamang is a type of Gibbon, and there are a couple of them at Gibbon Insland at the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere.

Often times, they'll sit at the tops of the trees and not do anything particularly interesting for seemingly hours. Sometimes, they'll make loud howling sounds seemingly nonstop. While the howling is fun, they are the most entertaining when they swing from branch to branch with the greatest of ease. There are other times when they look like they're about to fall 20 feet crashing to the ground, and then you realize they got this, as they find the right branch to swing around.

If you like zoo animals, or are a fan of the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, I invite you to check out my Nashville Zoo website gallery:
