Usual morning of feeding and clearing today. Had a slight miscommunication for the next session so we wandered around to grab some more pics.
The babies are always so full of energy and inquisitive.
While the adults are happy to watch the tourists walk on by.
There’s heaps of stick insects in the centre and the gibbons like to reach out through their cage and grab them.
We’ve been trying to work out what these big green fruit are – a kind of grapefruit.
We wandered over to the hill to try and grab some pics of the gibbon in the semi-wild area.
Fortunately the hung around long enough for us to grab a few shots.
They are just a giant ball of fluffy muscle.
In the afternoon Elke took all the volunteers for a trip to Van Long.
We took pics of the rice paddies while we waited for it to cool down a little.
Then Elke sorted out 3 boats to row us to the cliffs in search of the Langurs.
The normal touristy route is to turn right – it has nice scenery but less chance of seeing wildlife…or left – less pretty but more chance of Langurs.
We left it up to Elke to choose left…there was a bit of commotion when the first boat turned left.
Her choice paid off – we spotted a family on the rocks with babies in tow.
It’s cool watching them easily traverse what appear to us as sheer, impassible cliff faces.
We sat and watched as they moved higher and higher. There’s 7 of them in this photo – not so easy to spot!
It was getting dark so we headed back and our boat rowers were very happy when we tipped them.
Back just in time for dinner and to hang with the local cat wanting to share our food.
