Hi, Iím Matt! Come join me
on my journey to learn all about hylobates! The Canisius Ambassadors
for Conservation and I went all the way to Indonesia to learn about
the best gymnasts in the world so that we could help you learn too!
First things first, what
exactly is a hylobate? A hylobate is a mammal (or warm-blooded
animal) that is a primate. Primates include prosimians from
Madagascar, monkeys, apes, and humans! Within the large group of
mammals called primates, hylobates are also called lesser apes,
which means that they are closely related to other apes like
orangutans, gorillas, and chimpanzees.
