White-handed Gibbon exhibit at the Santa Barbara Zoo

The exhibit was a big island that is bigger than other zoos' gorilla exhibit. The zoo only has two gibbons so the island is gigantic for them.

      Looks a really fantastic exhibit. Thanks for posting.

      It's terrific to see the height that the gibbons can attain on their large island, and more zoos should have gibbon exhibits that allow for enormous trees to prosper and thus aid the apes with their brachiation.

      Actually, a great little zoo.

      With the strangest giraffe! He has a 90deg kink 3/4 up his neck. Really needs to be seen to belived!

      SB Zoo: Excellent gibbon exhibit, terrific breeding record with giant anteaters, great views of the mountains and Pacific ocean, otherwise just okay in my opinion.

      Unfortunately the giraffe with the kinked neck died earlier this year

      I actually visited in July to see the giraffe, but when I got there I found out she had died in January.

      I'll visit next year when they open the new California Condor exhibit.
