Gibbons are found in Southeast Asia, including China, India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

Gibbons prefer the upper forest canopy, where fruits are abundant and spreading branches allow for continuous travel. They also thrive in surviving areas of forests that have been logged.

Ripe fruits are gibbons' main diet. Figs are their favorite. They also feed on leaves, flowers, buds, shoots, bird eggs, young birds, and insects.
