Symphalangus syndactylus

The siamang is the largest species of the gibbon family. It also has the loudest call, enhanced by their large throat sac.



Size: 75 - 90cm
Weight: 10.5kg



Siamangs are native to Malaysia and Sumatra in Southeast Asia, living in rainforests in groups of 2 to 10 individuals.



Fruit and leaves make up most of a siamang’s diet, although they will also eat insects and spiders. They tend to search out the biggest trees, so they can feed in one place for longer.



Females give birth to a single young after a pregnancy of 7 to 7½ months. Baby siamangs are dependent on their mothers for the first year, and mature at 7 to 8 years old.



Numbers of siamangs are decreasing in the wild mainly due to hunting for the pet trade and the destruction of their rainforest habitat.
Banham Zoo & Africa Alive! joined zoos across Europe in support of the ‘Southeast Asia campaign’ which raised much needed funds for the conservation of threatened species in Southeast Asia. Thanks to our guests, Banham Zoo alone raised €17,000 for this campaign!
