The jungle day 2.

Lets just call this Proboscis day!

Today I fell in love with a monkey or three, we were doing our daily drive around to check out the wildlife when all of a sudden we spotted this troupe of Proboscis monkeys heading through the mangrove area near the ocean.

These monkeys are only found on this island and are sadly endangered, I hope that some conservation efforts are made but this seems unlikely.  That is a conversation for another day.

A male and female.

I was actually lucky enough to see these guys pretty regularly while I was visiting and each time was just as brilliant as the last.
