[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a white cheeked Gibbon, Hylobates concolor leucogenys, which is native to the tropical forests, formerly known as jungles, of Vietnam and Laos. It was taken at the Brookfield Zoo. The animal was about 60 ft in the air at the top of a tree. The way the Tropics world exhibit works is that there's a very deep hole in the ground and the trees etc come up to ground level where the visitors walk. that way the animals, mostly apes and monkeys can be where they're most comfortable, at the tops of the trees, and the vistors can see them without having to look way up.
