Baby Boom at Endangered Primate Rescue Center
The Center has seen 5 new births these last couple of months, totaling 8 births since the beginning of the year. They are exclusively Hatinh Langurs and Douc Langurs newborns, and it’s interesting to see how seasons in EPRC are punctuated with different species reproduction… let’s get a clearer picture of our primates habits:
First, we cannot talk about langurs’ reproduction without mentioning their group structure, as it is composed of one male to at least three or four females and their infants. That potentially means a big family! Their breeding is all year long but Hatinh Langurs birth peaks are observed between January and March and Douc Langurs between March and June. They reach sexual maturity around 4-5 years old, and their gestation lasts 6 to 7 months.
