Dusky Langur eating leaves

on 15th May 2022

Bee Choo Strange shared a video of this Dusky Langur (Trachypithecus obscurus) eating leaves, taken in February 2020 at Bukit Tinggi in Peninsular Malaysia. She finds the way it eats the leaves rather interesting.

The Dusky Langur is considered threatened due to destruction of its habitat and poaching. This langur is also known as dusky leaf monkey, spectacled langur or spectacled leaf monkey. It feeds on leaves and fruits. Inhabitant of Myanmar, Southern Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia and seen occasionally in Singapore.


Can anyone identify the plant this langur is feeding on?
