An adult and young gibbon at Dublin Zoo. Gibbons are sometimes referred to as the lesser apes, as they differ from great apes (chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and humans) in being smaller and pair-bonded, in not making nests, and in certain anatomical details in which they superficially more closely resemble monkeys than great apes do.
