Originating from the Asian tropical rainforests, gibbons have been living in the Oliwa Zoo for some dozens of years or so. Here they have their own small island, connected to their new spacious house via a useful bridge. The individuals Gryzelda and Filip have the perfect conditions for daintily moving among the trees on their summer runway or on lianas in their winter room. Zookeepers take special care to make sure the duo stays active by, for example, hiding snacks in special bins suspended on the highest tree of the island in summer and, in winter, hiding treats in the nooks of their room.
