The Javan langurs in Halimun always seem far more skittish than the ones I've encountered in other places. I was watching a pretty distant group looking for a place to settle down for the evening when I noticed this guy really close by and much lower to the ground. One of the things I love about watching primates is you can see individual personalities and you could immediately tell this guy was a bit different. He didn't seem to care about my presence at all, he'd spotted the Black-banded squirrel having the time of its life in the fig tree close by. The langur was doing this weird looking at its feet, down at the floor, off to its side thing but kept taking sneaky glances at the squirrel. Eventually the squirrel started foraging close enough and then this guy hurtled through the branches trying to grab the squirrel. The squirrel was way too fast and there was a moment just after where the langur just stared at me like it was all my fault the squirrel had spotted him in time.
He had the crazy eyes. I think it was definitely a good thing for the squirrel that he didn't get his hands on him.
