A caring mommy.

These Silver Leaf monkeys are AWESOME! They are not aggressive like those Cynomolgus monkeys in Batu Caves. Most of them are approachable, 'friendly' and has a human-like behaviour.

I spent three hours patiently looking for photo opportunity. It's not that easy to take decent photos of these monkeys. The adult silver leaf monkeys are a bunch of eager living things. Whenever I extended the lens of my camera, these adults will look directly to the lens and try to 'fight' off the reflection visible on the lens.

I have to say these monkeys are CUTE and ADORABLE - they even have spiky hair! The infants or babies have golden brown fur coating. As they grow older, the coating will turn to silver-black colour. I was able to take some really good close-up shot of these babies. Some of these photos even show the infants feeding on milk. Again, I approach the adult female discreetly to capture the above pictures.

Remember to follow Part 3 to view pictures of adult silver leaf primates.
