Chasing Mirages

A curious child

A few baby langurs were born this year despite the instability of the family group.  This one’s about a month old.  Note that its face is not as dark as its mother’s, but also not as pale as a newborn’s would be.

    WOW does the orange fur turn black?

      Yes, the orange fur turns brown and then darkens to the black-and-white adult coloration. An interesting thing about these langurs is that the white furs shrink as they get older, meaning that langurs with darker fur are older, the opposite of humans!
