Where Does the Silver Langur Live?

Silver langurs are found in Southeast Asia and Indonesia. Most live in forests. In fact, they spend almost all of their time in trees and seldom go down to the ground.

Due to their habitat, the main food of these animals is leaves, and they consume a large amount of fruit. Their diet is supplemented with flowers, buds and insects. Silver langurs are also known as silvered leaf monkeys. Their name comes from their coloring. Though their fur is predominantly brown, gray, brownish-gray or black, some of the hairs are white or gray. This creates a silver effect. In contrast, the fur of newborns is orange.
