Myths and Legends of the Gibbons

We present these stories, myths and legends to highlight the cultural importance of gibbons in habitat countries. We must start with a clear statement that consuming any part of a gibbon has no medicinal value and that gibbons must not be kept as a pet (it is illegal everywhere). So please do enjoy these stories, but remember they are just stories. You can access all the stories and images as a pdf here.
