Hoolock gibbon In northeast India, the hoolock is found south of Brahmaputra and east of the Dibang Rivers. Its range extends into seven states covering Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura (The seven northeastern states of India).
Hoolock gibbon Like the other gibbons, they are diurnal and arboreal, brachiating through the trees with their long arms. They live together in monogamous pairs, which stake out a territory. Their calls serve to locate family members and ward off other gibbons from their territory. Their diet consists mainly of fruits, insects and leaves.
Hoolock gibbon The classification of this gibbon has changed several times in the past few years. Classically, all gibbons were classified in the genus "Hylobates", with the exception of the siamang. After some studies, the genus was divided into three subgenera (including the siamang's "Symphalangus"), and then into four (recognizing "Bunopithecus" as the hoolock subgenus distinct from other gibbon subgenera). These four subgenera were elevated to full genus status. However, the type species for "Bunopithecus" is "Bunopithecus sericus", an extinct gibbon or gibbon-like ape from Sichuan, China. Very recent investigations have shown the hoolocks are not closely related to "B. sericus", so have been placed in their own genus, "Hoolock". In the process, the two subspecies of hoolocks have been raised to species level. A new subspecies has been described recently from northeastern India, which has been named Mishmi Hills hoolock, "Hoolock hoolock mishmiensis". A further new species, "Hoolock tianxing", with an estimated population of about 200 in China, was discovered in southwest China in 2017.
Hoolock gibbon The hoolock gibbons are three primate species of genus Hoolock in the gibbon family, Hylobatidae, native to eastern Bangladesh, Northeast India and Southwest China.
Hoolock gibbon Hoolocks are the second-largest of the gibbons, after the siamang. They reach a size of 60 to 90 cm and weigh 6 to 9 kg. The sexes are about the same size, but they differ considerably in coloration: males are black-colored with remarkable white brows, while females have a grey-brown fur, which is darker at the chest and neck. White rings around their eyes and mouths give their faces a mask-like appearance. The Oxford English Dictionary says that the name "Hoolock" is from the Assamese or related languages.
Hoolock gibbon Young hoolocks are born after a seven-month gestation, with milky white or buff-colored hair. After about six months, the hair of males will darken and turn black, while the female hair remains buff-colored throughout her life. After eight to 9 years, they are fully mature and their fur reaches its final coloration. Their life expectancy in the wild is about 25 years.
Eastern hoolock gibbon The eastern gibbon is a forest dwelling primate and prefers a continuous canopy, which makes them vulnerable to loss of habitat and can be found in deciduous or evergreen forests. They also reside in partially deciduous hill forests as well as broadleaf pine forests and can be found as high as 2,700m in elevation in northeastern Myanmar. The gibbon has been found in tropical environments that experience monsoon rains and have cool, dry winters as well as lowland tropical environments.
Western hoolock gibbon Like other gibbons, hoolock gibbon pairs produce a loud, elaborate song, usually sung as a duet from the forest canopy, in which younger individuals of the family group may join in. The song includes an introductory sequence, an organising sequence, and a great call sequence, with the male also contributing to the latter (unlike in some other gibbon species).
Western hoolock gibbon Hoolock gibbons feed mostly on various fruits, with some leaves, flowers and insects.
Skywalker hoolock gibbon The Skywalker hoolock gibbon ("Hoolock tianxing") is a primate from the gibbon family, Hylobatidae. It is one of three species of hoolock gibbon. The species was first described in January 2017, in the "American Journal of Primatology".
