Sounding like a Gibbon

Want to talk like a Gibbon? Better learn the accent! A recent study of these primates has revealed that a Gibbon’s call varies depending on location. Each song is a little bit different and based on this research, scientists can tell where a Gibbon is from just by listening to it. Both guy and girl Gibbons belt out the tunes! Calling to define their territory and to find mates.
