This stunning doll-like monkey is an infant Dusky Langur. We see babies fairly often, but we seldom get a nice photo of them. This wonderful shot was taken by Mr. Rhys Clarke with his 600 mm zoom lens while sitting in a kayak!

This is a Banded Langur. The Dusky Langur is very common in Khao Sok National Park. We only see this particular species every once in a while. It's always a treat to watch monkeys up in the trees.  

This photo was taken by Mr. Rhys Clarke while sitting in a kayak. He was using a 600 mm zoom lens.

This is a male Great Hornbill. He has a red eye and a distinctive black mark on the front of his cask (above his bill). Great Hornbills are very common in Khao Sok National Park. 

This is a female Great Hornbill. She has a white eye (red ring) and she has a solid yellow cask (above her bill).  The male has a red eye and a black mark on the front of his cask.  The Great Hornbill is one of the most common birds in Khao Sok National Park. We see them every time we go there. Often, we see them while we're at the floating bungalows.

The Crested Serpent-Eagle is the most user-friendly bird in Khao Sok National Park. This raptor lets you get very close, making it very easy to get a clear image.
