Social units of siamangs and gibbons consist of male and female with dependent offspring. They are mostly monogamous but sometimes mate with other individuals. Males highly involved with raising the young. Both males and females are highly territorial Orangutans There are two sub-species found in Indonesia and on Borneo and Sumatra.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
