  1. I had this nice encounter with this lone male one morning wandering in the forest around our little guesthouse, as he was quietly feeding in a tree. He saw me first, of course, and I located him because of the grunts he started making, but I didn't get too close, and he settled down more or less, though he was clearly pleased when I moved on...

  2. The only native primate in Taiwan, other than people. Another very valuable species intro, well done Thibaud! Posted 11 months ago
    1. My pleasure! For some reason, some sources also cite a lutung as occurring in Taiwan, but that seems to be incorrect... Posted 11 months ago, modified 11 months ago
