Feature
The individual was the first gibbon to come to the Noichi Zoological Park of Kochi Prefecture and lived with Chaco in amity. He is covered with black hair.
Character
Kuro is very poised and even-tempered. I have never seen he show surprise at something or become excited. He was tame around humans, and keepers could freely touch him. I recall that he got along well with Chaco and carefully groomed Chaco. Meanwhile, Nita, who paired up with Chaco after Kuro's death, is dependent on Chaco and is always being groomed by Chaco.
