Devs, please add Gibbons and Siamangs

I remember hearing that there was a gibbon found in the files when the beta was datamined (along with a howler monkey) so maybe it will be added at some point.

Ooh, I hope so! I love listening to them in Zoo Tycoon 2 and in real life at the Phoenix Zoo.

I work with siamang on a regular basis so I'd love to see them in-game. Or any gibbon. I think the fact that they are so much more arboreal than other primates, even in zoos where many primate species eventually "learn" to be terrestrial, makes it difficult to include them, though. They do spend time on the ground in captivity, but not nearly as much as the great apes, or even many monkeys. I also work with capuchin, and while they have a ton of climbing space they do go on the ground quite a lot because they know they'll get easy access to food down there (primarily due to the fact that when they feed a lot of their food falls to the ground). The siamang aren't the same. They'll come down for a bit to grab a toy or a snack, but they always take it back up into the jungle gym again.
