    Default Langur debarking

    Observed this langur debarking a tree in Bandipur Tiger Reserve on Aug 31st.

    It pulled a part of the bark with its teeth and then walked a few paces and chewed it.

    Nice documentation of this behaviour. Why does it do this?

    I liked last image, which resembles behavior of humans. Men in countryside sit like this on roadside area like bus stops.

    I don't think this is common behavior/activity of langurs
