Grizzled Langur, It has been reported that accidently, researchers have clicked the photographs of a rare type of monkey known as Miller’s Grizzled Langurs. Until now, no picture of the monkey was available.
It has been informed that cameras were set up at the Wehea Forest to capture the images of leopard orangutans. But when the researchers reviewed the photographs, they found the images of rare type of monkey.
Accidently, the researchers were able to discover the rare monkey which for long had been a hidden mystery. Initially, the researchers were not convinced about the photographs but later on, after conducing review they announced of clicking the images of Miller’s Grizzled Langurs.
Following the revelations made by the photographs, the researchers are now looking forward to count as to how many monkeys are present at the forest. The counting of the monkey would take place soon. It has been informed that the rare monkey, Miller’s Grizzled Langurs, has a black face framed by a fluffy and white collar.
Their eyes are hooded and they have pink nose and lips. Till now only the information about the monkeys was available at the museums. But now as further studies would be conducted over them, more information about their lifestyle and looks would be revealed.
It was believed that the rare type of monkeys might have been extinct due to deforestation process. But the images of the monkey have given new rays of hope to the researchers. Brent Loken from Simon Fraser University said, “There are so many animals we know so little about, and their home ranges are disappearing so quickly. It feels like a lot of these animals are going to quickly enter extinction”. It is hoped that the discovery would prove useful for the researchers in safeguarding the Miller’s Grizzled Langurs.
