I went to Sama Jaya Forest Reserve in Kuching recently and stumbled upon a gang of monkeys (Macaca Fascicularis). Sama Jaya Forest Reserve is also known as Stutong Forest Reserve.
Sama Jaya Forest Reserve is surrounded by housing estates and commercial blocks and the forest reserve become the sanctuary for Macaques (the monkeys). My rough count on the monkeys total to nine (9). 2 adult monkeys (the parent), 5 adolescence monkeys, 1 baby monkey and 1 infant monkey.
Below are some of the pictures on the monkeys:
An elder monkey breaking a plant shoot before eating it.
An adolescence monkey scratching his butt.
Another monkey up in the trees.
A monkey perched on branches. Notice his right leg grappling a bunch of wild fruits (buah buan).
A mother monkey with her infant.
One of unidentified tropical fruit eaten by the monkey.
