Mysterious Monkey Discovered in Wehea Forest Borneo
An elusive monkey feared extinct has shown up in the remote forests of Borneo, posing for the first good pictures of the animal ever taken.
The mug shots reveal a furry Count Dracula of sorts, with the monkey's black head, face tipped with white whiskers and a pointy collar made of fluffy white fur.
The Miller's grizzled langur, an extremely rare primate that has suffered from habitat loss over the last 30 years, popped up unexpectedly in the protected Wehea Forest in east Kalimantan, Borneo.

I'm concentrating on staying healthy,
having peace, being happy,
remembering what is important,
taking in nature and animals,
spending time reading, trying to
understand the universe, where
science and the spiritual meet.
