Seeing this Species

 

Phu Khieo Wildlife Sanctuary, Thailand

A group was habituated here at the Huai Mai Sot Yai study site [1].

 

Please see the page on the Grey Langur for more information on this sanctuary.

 

Probability of Success: Perhaps not bad if habituated

 

Overlapping species: Greater Slow Loris, Northern Pig-tailed Macaque, Rhesus Macaque, Stump-tailed Macaque, Grey Langur, White-handed Gibbon

 

*Perhaps surprisingly Long-tailed Macaque do not occur here, even though the park is home to the other four of Thailand's five species of macaque [1].
