Kaki Bukit is a small town very near to the Thai-Malaysian border where the famous Gua Kelam cave and a major forest reserve are located. This reserve covers natural formation of forested slopes with a semi-deciduous forest, extensive underground cave systems and an unique fauna and flora - it's a treasure of biological diversity like this Gibbon high up in the a tree next to the entrance of the Gua Kelam cave. The other members of his family were not so curious and were making their way to trees further away, while he kept on watching what these humans would do.

strano animale ben catturato per questa foto naturalistica.
Occhi e bocca risaltano sul pelo scuro.

I never saw this kinf of monkey. I like take photos of them, have many in my files.
I like the lichens on the tree, showing the place has no pollution (lichens are indicators of air pollution).
The monkey seems with a mask for a fantasy party.

Cocasse et surprenant Urs, un amimal, un singe, qui a une bien bonne bouille, sympathique. Le dos un peu coupé, dommage, mais tu as privilégié le plan rapproché pour les détails.
My best regards.

Hello Urs, Amazing eyes on this little fella, a lot different to the monkey I posted recently. Cute capture, strange eyes & mouth, interesting. I have seen some black eyes before but never white eyes ;-). Nice little catch light in the eyes. Well done
