The Silver Langur or Silvered Leaf Monkey is a colobine (leaf-eating monkey) found in Myanmar, Thailand, Indochina, Malaysia, Sumatra and Borneo. Its preferred habitat is coastal, mangrove and riverine forests. Its name refers to its fur colour, although infants are a contrasting bright orange.
In Borneo, the silver langur can be seen at Bako National Park, Kinabatangan River, Garama River and various other places. Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary has a group of silver langurs that has gotten quite used to humans and mingle among tourists during feeding time.
