IUCN STATUS: Near threatened
Found in Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand, these langurs primarily eat leaves but will also eat other plant materials such as seeds, fruits and flowers. Groups normally have at least one male, two females and their offspring. Group sizes can be from 5 to 20 individuals. The number of dusky langurs have declined at a rate of 30% over the last 30 years! Did you know that langur means ‘having a long tail’ in Hindi.
Howletts have been very successful in breeding Dusky langurs with over 15 births since 2010!
