Deep In Thought

By SteveMoulding    
Deep in thought is this small Banded Leaf Monkey, a beautiful little Colobine. They are native to the Southern-Central forests of Sumatra and are threatened due to deforestation. The Colobine or Leaf Eating Monkeys are forest dwellers living off a diet of large quantities of leaves. The diet is not very nutritious and often contains amounts of powerful Toxins. These toxins are neutralised by their specially developed digestive systems which break down the leaves.
I hope you like her.
Many thanks for all your C&C's and votes on my previous uploads.
Have a great weekend,

Best viewed large if time permits.
