This gorgeous monkey thought to be extinct was rediscovered in Borneo. Known as the Miller’s grizzled langur, its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. Scientists put cameras around originally hoping to capture a variety of wildlife in the area, when the footage was checked; they saw monkeys that they had never before seen.
There was no actual photos of this monkey in existence, except for some drawings from a museum, so it did take awhile before they worked out what type of monkey it was. With the cameras that the Scientists used, the monkeys have appeared in almost 4.000 photos captured over a 2 month period.
What I also find astonishing is that back in July 2011 I did a post on another animal that was found in Borneo and thought to be extinct:
