Male and female pileated gibbon looks different from each other as males have purely black fur, while females’ fur is white grey with only the belly and head black. However, white and often shaggy hair ring around the head is common for both sexes.
They often sleep on trees that are close to the last feeding trees of that day, and the same tree is rarely used more than once and almost never used on two consecutive nights. They are threatened by hunting for meat and wildlife trade, as well as habitat destruction. Their habitat was also fragmented, separating populations ecologically and reproductively.
