      That's a fabulous portrait.
      It would be great if you could post to www.flickr.com/groups/zoo_uk/

      Javan silvered leaf monkey

      Interesting...we got them in Antwerp too. (And Beauval , a zoo I visit often)Never realized that they are so rare in zoos. Thanks for adding.

      I hadn't realised there were so few Javan Brown Langurs (aka Javan Silvered Leaf Monkey) in Zoos either - I guess we all tend to take stuff in our local zoo a little bit for granted!

      I did see a wild troop once, At pangandaran (on Java of course) , they were catching some last sunshine at some high trees at the border of the parc , quit a lot of them. They are a bit shy and got a gentle nature. (not to be compared with .... makaak)

      Hope to visit twycross again one day.

      Must have been great to see them in the wild - I'm jealous :)

      I look forward to seeing your pics from Twycross next time you visit
