A team of scientists has found the Miller's Grizzled Langur alive and well in the Bornean rainforest.
The very rare primate was found in an area in which it was not known to previously exist and was thought to be extinct. "Concern that the species may have gone extinct was first raised in 2004, and a search for the monkey during another expedition in 2008 supported the assertion that the situation was dire," said Brent Loken.
An international team of scientists has found one of the rarest and least known primates in Borneo, Miller's Grizzled Langur, a species which was believed to be extinct or on the verge of extinction.
