Mammal of the Week – Delacour’s Langur

Delacour’s Langur (Trachypithecus delacouri)

Delacour's langur (Trachypithecus delacouri)

In the sharply stony karst forests of northern Vietnam, brightly colored monkeys jump and run through the rocky cliffs and woodlands.

This is the northern Annamite Mountains, a land of rough terrain, rare mammals, and expansive wilderness.

It’s usually really tough to see, but if you take a boat along the rocky shore of Van Long Lake in northern Vietnam, you may just get lucky enough to spot one of these wonderful langurs.
