Siamang

Siamang are the largest of the 14 species of gibbons. They’re very acrobatic and agile, with extra-long arms that help them cover up to 10 feet in a single swing. If they’re not swinging through the trees, they’re very likely walking along branches with their arms outstretched to help them keep their balance.
