More photos from Disney's Animal Kingdom

These gibbons live on a small island refuge in the Animal Kingdom. According to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park website, gibbons live in small, monogamous family groups comprised of a mated pair and several offspring — the adult female is the alpha in the group

The blond gibbon is obviously the mother, who was having her own fun while keeping an eye on her offspring at the same time. Meanwhile, her dark-furred son wanted to have some fun of his own. By the fourth photo you can see Mom has reined in her son and was next observed her taking him inside the stone structure—probably for a nap.
