Meet Samuel and Duana – Bristol Zoo’s king of the swingers! Our pair of agile gibbons live on Gibbon Island and you can see them leaping expertly from rope to rope. You might also hear their distinctive call ringing out across the Zoo.
Can you tell them apart? Samuel has more white hair on his face than Duana.
The other lake islands near the gibbons are home to squirrel monkeys and ring tail lemurs. You can also find other primate species in the Monkey Jungle including lion-tailed macaques, ring-tailed lemurs and howler monkeys.
