Ella

Ella is an adult female lar gibbon (Hylobates lar) who arrived at the park on 21/05/02 and we estimate was born during 1985.  She was smuggled from the wild into a Vietnamese circus before she was confiscated in Russia by Government Authorities.  Ella was kept at Kaliningrad Zoo for a couple of years before they sent her to Monkey World.

Kitty

Kitty is a female lar gibbon (Hylobates lar) who was captive born at the Pingtung Rescue Center in Taiwan. Both of her parents had been smuggled from the wild for the illegal pet trade in Taiwan. Kitty was born on 07/08/99 and arrived at the park on 21/07/01. She is very shy, loves human attention, as she was hand-reared, and now lives with Paul, the agile gibbon, who is her best friend.
