The bamboo was for the White-Handed Gibbon exhibit. There is an inside and outside habitat for the unique animals. The Gibbons have a very large outside play area that allows them to climb and swing, even on the bamboo. This is one of the reason they needed large bamboo to start with. Bamboo was used extensively in this exhibit to create a tropical and lush feeling. There was also Reeve’s Mutjac brought in to compliment the Gibbon exhibit. The mutjac have a bamboo house and are very elusive creatures, at least early in the morning.
It was a pleasure to get to work with the Zoo and the Shauger Group on this project. Here are some pictures we took while we were there.
