Quick Facts about Siamangs:

  • Siamangs are territorial and defend their territory with daily calls or bark-like vocalizations, using their throat sacs.
  • Siamangs are highly intelligent, each having their own distinct character and personality.
  • Siamangs live in small family groups.
  • Siamangs walk with their arms over their head for balance due to lack of strength in their legs.
