Hunting Monkeys

I know that the title of this post is going to upset a lot of people but rest assured our ‘hunt’ was like a treasure hunt.  We were hoping to find and photograph three of the species of monkeys that live in the Klias Wetlands of Borneo.  My camera battery was kaput so I didn’t get any photos but David was able to get some ‘award-winning’ photos. I have included a few here but it was difficult to choose which ones to include because there were so many really good ones.

The Klias Wetlands are a few hours drive south of Kota Kinabalu.  After our daylight river cruise where we were able to see Proboscis monkeys and Long-tailed Macaques, we had a buffet dinner at the base camp  Our guide told me that the Silver-leaf monkey is very shy and rarely sighted.

After dinner, we returned to the boat for a firefly cruise.  It wasn’t as exciting as ‘hunting’ monkeys but seeing a whole tree lit up as if with fairy lights was quite magical.
