10 ANIMAL SPECIES IN WHICH THE MALE CARES FOR THE YOUNG

2. SIAMANGS

Close relatives of the gibbons, these "lesser apes" inhabit Malaya and Sumatra and are monogamous. Families usually consist of an adult male, an adult female, their infant offspring, and an older juvenile. During the day, while the family forages in the treetops, the male carries the infant; at night he sleeps with the juvenile while the female nurses the infant.
