A langur's lunch is interrupted.
In the monkey world, macaques are designed for humor. They can roller skate, smoke cigarettes and fling feces with unfortunate inaccuracy. The problem is, often, macaques are bullies, stealing things from people they'll never use such as hats and digital cameras. Enter the slender, mild-mannered langur with a face incongruous to its demeanor. Sure, they're more difficult to get a pair of roller blades on but in a war between different species of monkeys, I'm rooting for these gentle souls any day of the week, including Sundays!
A pair of langurs laze in the shade away from the Sri Lankan sun.
