A medium-sized ape found in the trees. It is known for its loud calls.

Siamangs are a very rare species of gibbon found exclusively in tropical moist broadleaf forests, where they appear in groups of 5-10 individuals. Twice as heavy as the average cat, these apes are little more than a distraction for a passing dwarf, being benign and overall harmless. All siamangs are born with Legendary skill in climbing.

Siamangs can be captured in cage traps and trained into valuable exotic pets. Due to their rarity and small size, they make poor targets for a meat industry. Siamangs take 8 years to reach adulthood, but reach their maximum size by the age of 2. Out of the species of gibbon in the game, they hold the distinction of being the only one that is innately able to swim.

Some dwarves like siamangs for their loud calls and their ability to swing through the trees.

Admired for its loud calls.
