This is not actually true. What actually happens, as I explain in Esperanto in this video, is that they become dislocated at the shoulder.

The link should take you right to the part of the video in question.

Technically speaking, gibbons are apes... Is there a separate word for that in Esperanto? Google Translate has been less than helpful...

Since you ask... I also don't know why falling due to a dislocation would invalidate the original proverb...

Because not all of them is falling, I guess.

GIbonoj estas "senvostaj simioj."
