Silver-leafed baby monkeys are worth their weight in gold! February 13, 2007

Posted by asianpixmen in Fauna/Animals, Malaysia, Nature, Places.


Baby monkeys of the silver-leafed species like those which can be found in Bukit Melawati in Kuala Selangor have orange-gold fur.

So they are quite attractive at this stage of their development. That phase will soon pass and their fur will change to that standard silver-grey colour for adult Silver-leafed monkeys.

I live in Malaysia, not far from Kuala Selangor where a rather large population live by the mangrove swamp. A total population of around 300, divided in 4 large groups. A few years ago, a severe drought has obliged these shy monkeys to go towards human habitations . They have found out that they were well received. They are now a popular feature by the light house. I personally go there quite often with large offerings of bread, papayas, bananas, watermelon ,cucumbers, green beans and the favorite green bananas. These monkeys are friendly, will climb on you without scratching or pinching,you can hand feed them without fear of being bitten. I have many pictures of these nice little guys with their bright red babies. These are my favorite monkeys of all times

Francoise, you are one of the lucky ones. Some Malaysians live all their lives in cities and have not caught a glimpse of these very cute furry creatures.
