Chanee’s wife and five-year-old son join him on a tricky mission to help a slow loris. These big-eyed primates may look cute, but they produce a toxin through the glands on the inside of their elbows, which they then rub into their teeth for added self-defence.
Meanwhile at the gibbon centre on Hampapak Island, two gibbons, Holly and Habir, which Chanee introduced to each other on a blind date, seem to be falling in love. Chanee’s expertise is working, years of studying the love-making habits of gibbons in French zoos when he was a youngster are paying off.
But not everything is going smoothly for Chanee. At a nearby town, angry villagers have engaged hunters to shoot a troublesome proboscis monkey, one of Borneo’s largest primates is running riot in their town. If Chanee can get to the large-nosed creature first, he may be able to save it and take it back to Hampapak Island.
