We noted that adult pairs sing to advertise the establishment of their territory or to warn off other family groups. The gibbons’ duets also help to strengthen pair bonds, and single adults sing to attract a mate. A Disney Parks Blog fan asked what the gibbons’ songs sound like. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, here’s a short video that features our gibbons’ morning duet. Enjoy!
