Dudley and Daphne are our 2 White-Handed Gibbons at Living Treasures Moraine. They joined us towards the end of last season, and have quickly become one of the favorites for people visiting the park.
These 2 are very social animals, and love to engage with people passing by. They will often sit on the ledge to inspect everyone closely, or will reach out and put their hands on the glass to say hi.
Who are you calling a monkey?
Gibbons are often mistakenly referred to as monkeys, but they are classified as Apes. How can you tell?
Gibbons make a loud, unmistakable "whooping" call that can be heard from great distances. Some days you may be able to hear these guys from the parking lot before even entering the park! They are known for making it look effortless to swing through the trees, and can cover horizontal distances of up to 40 feet and vertical distances of 50 feet in one swing!!
Stop out and visit Dudley and Daphne soon- they'd love to come over and say hello. Their exhibit is just to the left of the Water Buffalo and Ring-Tailed Lemur exhibit.
