James Bond Island, known originally and locally as Ko Tapu or Nail Island, found fame through the 1974 Bond film "The Man with the Golden Gun". The film starred Roger Moore and Christopher Lee (as the three nippled arch-villain Scaramanga) but it was the scenic topography that helped make the film into a firm Bond favourite. It also turned the previously unknown Phang Nga Bay into a major tourist attraction.
Gibbons are unusual because unlike 94 percent of all other primate species, they are monogamous, living in small families composed of a mated pair and up to four offspring. Gibbons are physically independent at about three, mature at about six, and usually leave the family group at about eight years of age.
This extraordinary image was sent to in-boxes across the world shortly after the 2004 tsunami, along with a caption claiming it was taken moments before the huge wave swamped Phuket in Thailand. But the photo was a fraud on both counts – the seafront was actually that of the Chilean city of Antofagasta, and the wave had been digitally added.
