Long-tailed Macaque Twins in Don Chao Poo Forest

Ten days ago I saw a monkey carrying two young infants. The infants looked to be the same age but I had never seen twins in the forest here before. I know that sometimes a female will foster an orphaned infant, so that is a possibility too. At the time I did not have my camera with me, and my sighting of the mother + two was quite brief.

I have been on the lookout for them ever since, and today I finally succeeded. And I had my camera with me.

They look like twins to me. What do you think? And have you come across long-tailed macaque twins in the wild before?

    Nice post Lawrence. Looks like one of the little ones has got a mohawk – he’s going to be a rebel.
