Siamang Pair Singing

Siamangs are the largest of the Gibbon family. My interest towards Gibbons started a few months ago when I saw a White Handed Gibbon gliding through the canopy at amazingly high speed at Taronga Zoo Sydney. This pair at Taronga Western Plains Zoo have fueled my enthusiasm for these amazing creatures. 

This breeding pair of Siamangs live on two islands at Taronga Western Plains Zoo. They sing to claim their territory and it is part of their bonding ritual. The zoo keepers say you can hear these guys singing all the way in town.
