Dusky Langurs, a vegetarian species found mainly in Malaysia give birth to orange colored babies that converts to the adult coloration in 4 months. In this image a new mother has uncharacteristically moved away from her 2 week old baby (right) who is being comforted by an infant of about 3.5 month of age.
