Seeing this Species

 

Phu Khieo Wildlife Sanctuary

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

 

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

 

Probability of Success: Perhaps not bad if habituated

 

Overlapping species: Sunda Slow Loris, Northern Pig-Tailed Macaque, Rhesus Macaque, Stump-Tailed Macaque, Gray 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].
