Proboscis and Francois’ Langur Monkeys Borneo

Both of these monkeys are some of the rarest in the world and the funniest. It was feeding time when we arrived, they have two sessions a day and the monkeys are called in to come and get some fresh vegetables. The call they use is not dissimilar to a farmer calling his cows in…
