Funny gibbon tightrope walks across bridge in Plett

Monkeying around in Plett, Siam, an 8 year-old Gibbon braves a tightrope walk across the 128m suspension bridge at Monkeyland and Birds of Eden. Siam was rescued from captivity and released into the sanctuary just eight months ago.


A WOBBLY gibbon tightrope walks across a suspension bridge 60 feet up in this hilarious video. The comical footage shows eight-year-old ape Siam balancing precariously on the rope crossing. The white-handed gibbon was bred in captivity and brought to Monkeyland sanctuary in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, one year ago.
