Singapore ZooAmong Psycho Hamster's albums
This magnificent animal is a type of gibbon. It seems to have an inflatable throat that allows it to make a wonderful call (louder and throatier than the Bornean gibbon but still recognisable).
Beneath the Siamang's trees was a small river / pool where a gharial lived with some waterbirds.
The home of the Siamang and the gharial was the nicest area in the zoo - a mini rainforest set on the edge of a reservoir. Not sure how they manage to keep these animals captive!

The siamang is the black blob on the centre-right. Through the stream is a large reservoir. On the way to the zoo I saw two large eagles flying over the water. The reservoir is surrounded by areas of forest - there were monkeys playing by the road.
