languid langur

"The charming Spectacled Langur has dark grey to blackish fur, becoming lighter grey on the crown. The skin on the face is dark grey, the chin and lips pinkish, and the eyes surrounded with a thick white ring. The young are bright yellow. The species occurs in a variety of habitats including coastal and riverine forests. They are active in early morning and late afternoon when family groups of around 10 individuals may descend to clearings in the forest or to the river's edge to feed on young leaves and shoots. The species ranges from southern Burma and Thailand to Peninsular Malaysia. These photographs were taken at Langkawi, Peninsular Malaysia."
