Locomotion

White-Cheeked Gibbons Locomotion

As a result white cheeked gibbons move so fast their little hairs fly back.Naturally their hands and feet are both hands so they can grab on to the rope and slightly grab on to the tree branches. Gibbons are adapted for an arboreal lifestyle and use a mode of locomotion called brachiation. Brachiation is a hand over hand motion gibbons use to move through the trees.
