Adult Lar Gibbon

thumb Overbaugh Daisy

An adult lar gibbon drinking water near Khao Nang Rum Wildlife Research Station, Huai Kha Khaend Wildlife Sanctuary, Thailand. The diet of wild lar gibbons includes a large amount of succulent fruit, which provides plenty of fluid. However, during the dry season, fruits are scarce and contain little water, requiring gibbons to search for water sources. Daisy and her family visited this tree several times and took turns dipping their hands in the crevice between branches and letting water drip of their hands into their mouths.
