Camperdown Wildlife Centre have released  stunning slow motion footage of one of their latest arrivals. The footage shows a male Lar Gibbon using his long arms to propel himself across the enclosure from point to point via hanging ropes.

Two Lar Gibbons arrived at the centre on 18 August, 2017 from Zoo de Bordeaux Pessac. The male and female Gibbons are currently in isolation and will remain so for 30 days although they are visible to the public.
