The “uncommon” common Langur
Hi everyone! I’m finally back and have access to my photos again so thought I’d post a quick shot of one of my favorite animals of our India trip – the gray or “common” Langur monkey. These animals were pretty much everywhere we went on our trip so in that respect they are indeed very common. Our guides in India seemed a little baffled by my insistence that we stop so I could take photos of these little guys. At each of our stops we had to explain that there are NO monkey native to the US and that they are very exotic and fascinating to us. They always humored me and stopped every time I asked so you may expect to see many more of these monkeys (and other types) over the coming posts. I thought I’d start with this photo as it is a good view of the gray fur and the black face – and the expression always hints that we have a lot in common with these primates. Ya gotta love-em!
