PREVIOUS MONKEY NEXT MONKEY Vietnam

The Grey Langur is a species of Leaf Monkey found in Southwestern China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and northern Vietnam and which was previously considered a subspecies of the Phayre's Leaf Monkey (fig.), yet is now recognized as a distinct species, based on molecular data.

 

It has an overall pale grey fur, a long tail, a bluish-grey face with white circles around the eyes, and white skin at the mouth. It is also similar to the Dusky Leaf Monkey (fig.), but has a lighter fur.

Like other Leaf Monkeys, Grey Langurs are herbivorous, feeding primarily on leaves, fruits and buds, and hence spend most of their lives in the canopy of trees. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
