We were quietly driving home from class on Wednesday in the early afternoon when we spied suru! - yes monkeys!
This is less than one km from our house and it is our street. There were probably several groups of monkey families - many small ones. They were very shy and turned their backs quickly and climbed into the dense forest trees. Sometimes they are hard to see, but we were impressed.
The local farmers are not impressed. Of course the monkeys forage on the forest floor for berries and fruits but they also invade the farmers' vegie patches.
