Carefree monkey swings his arms while skipping across grass

This is the amusing moment an adorable gibbon skipped down to a stream - with his arms swinging round in circles.

The primate, named Chump, was recorded by staff at the Khao Kheow Open Zoo in Chonburi, eastern Thailand.

The zookeeper said: "This gibbon is really cute. I love the way he walks around when he's feeling happy. It's like he doesn't have a care in the world.''

Gibbons are small apes that have around 20 species found in the tropical forests of Southeast Asia.

Like the great apes, they have a human-like build and no tail. However, they appear to lack higher cognitive abilities and self-awareness.
