A Close-up on the Sexual Organ of a Grey-shanked Douc Langur!!!

Grey-Shanked Douc Langur Sexual Organ

Oh hi there! Sorry for the shocking content This is an sexual organ of a male Grey-Shanked Douc Langur (Pygathrix cinerea) in its “peak”. In EPRC, we usually joke that his clock likes to indicate at exact 12 o’clock.

FACT
It is interesting that douc langurs do not only have their sexual organs erected because of mating desire. Like this photo, it was taken when we started grouping 3 grey-shanked douc langurs and the male was pretty excited (non-sexually because he hadn’t seen the females at that time yet). They also “enlarge” their p*nis in front of an enemy because they want to appear bigger in order to scare away the enemy.

This photo was posted due to agreement with most of our audience on Facebook. So please don’t report us if you find this offensive  Instead, feel honored because you have a chance to see such a beautiful anatomy

EPRC’s Baby Langurs

Learn About Baby Langurs

It is truly a magic of nature when you see the orange heads of baby langurs popping out from their mothers’ black arms (in case of Hatinh langurs). All of these 5 infants were born at EPRC and now are grown-ups, healthy and strong – waiting for their possible release days in the future. The baby langurs may look alike, but if you look more closely, you will spot out some slight differences.

  1. François’ Langur (Trachypithecus francoisi)
  2. Delacours Langur (Trachypithecus delacouri)
  3. Hatinh Langur (Trachypithecus hatinhensis)
  4. Indochinese Grey Langur (Trachypithecus crepusculus)
  5. Cat Ba Langur (Trachypithecus poliocephalus)

A Toad at EPRC?!?

A Toad Friend

Some weeks ago, we observed a strange scene right in EPRC. CP, the Delacour’s Langur found a toad and held it for straight 2 days. She didn’t harm the toad at all, instead, was embracing it and took care of it well.

We have never seen this before, but assume that CP might be pregnant and she was preparing for her upcoming baby. However, until now, no baby has been delivered. We will keep waiting and updating for you all
