Langurs on Alert

A group of Miller's grizzled langurs, including a mother and her baby, scan the scene around the Indonesian mineral spring.

"Coming to the ground to drink can be a dangerous proposition for a [tree-dwelling] primate, as it makes them more vulnerable to predators," Spehar said.

"This may be why they spend so much time sitting in the trees around the sepan—they are cautiously surveying the scene before they descend to the ground."
