The Penumbra of Hoolock ! by Sunil

This classical rim lit image of the female Hoolock Gibbon was captured at the natural habitat for Gibbons at NZP, New Delhi. The tailless Hoolock Gibbon is the only ape found in India. This primate is native to exclusive regions of Northeast India, Southwest China and Parts of Bangladesh. A fascinating creature akin to the humans, parallel in the tree of evolution. They display bipedalism like humans and gibbons can grasp onto branches as if they had hooks in their palms. This is a great adaptation to their mode of locomotion, called brachiation.! A protected species deserving our undivided attention!
