When you think of fun, realistic and super cuddly critters, do you think of Wild Republic? Well, if not, you should! Wild Republic has made a name for itself with industry-leading standards in durability and quality, not to mention attention to their whole ark of highly realistic and natural-looking stuffed animals.
Gibbons are primates and they are unique are unique among their ape relations. Gibbons are smaller than other apes (which includes other primates like chimps, gorillas, orangutans, bonobos and humans), Most animals in the wild have what is called ‘sexual dimorphism’. This means that males and females look distinctly different. With gibbons, this isn’t the case. Males and females look more alike. Most apes don’t pair-bond either. This means that when it comes time to mate, they’re indiscriminate about who they’ll set up kip with. Gibbons are more choosy, and when they pick a mate, often, it is lifebond. Aww. If only most humans were as loyal.
Gibbons also love swinging in the trees. They are superb at brachiation (or moving by swinging between trees). They can do this very quickly, and are among the most agile of all the apes. Their colors can vary too, from grey, to black to brown and sometimes (rarely) white.
The adorable Lar, is of course durable but he’s also soft and super snuggly too. This stuffed Gibbon is mostly brown, with the usual white circle around his face, and lively, expressive black, washer-locked eyes. You can guarantee that with all the love and fun this guy offers, he’ll have a place of honor in your home for years and years.
