A snub-nosed monkey crouches in a mountain jungle in northern Myanmar (Burma) this past spring in one of several pictures of the species released this week. The photos are said to be the first ever of live snub-nosed monkeys.

Generally it is locals who are the ones doing the poaching of animals .. and they already know where they are. Lets hope the demand by outsiders for their capture is not there.

I think it is interesting that during the 60s the US tried to bomb and defoliate the entire area of Laos, Cambodia, Viet Nam and parts of Thailand and all these new species of higher animal are coming out of this area. I guess we did a terrible job of it. But then it was a political war. Not a war that was to be physically won.

Camera safaris provide the ultimate trophy: the image of a live animal who survived the encounter. Encouraging use of cameras vice rifles when eating the prey isn't part of the hunt is commendable.

Oh great, I'm sure some enterprising person will soon be out looking to get a few specimens for a zoo somewhere.
