Agile gibbons can be easily distinguished by their white eyebrows, and males have white fur at the sides of their faces. Their fur is short, often black but also can be brown, light tan, and reddish-brown. Their exceptionally long arms, in proportion to their torso and coupled with long fingers, allow them to swing effortlessly through the trees. They are very loyal to their partners as well because when they find a mate, they will spend the rest of their life together. Isn’t that touching?
In 2019, they were listed as ‘Endangered.’ Their population rapidly decreases due to massive deforestation for logging and agricultural demands. In some areas, they are also hunted for human consumption.
