The average body mass for an adult male dusky leaf-monkey is around 8.30
kilograms, and for the female it is around 6.5 kilograms. The dusky leaf-monkey
lives in the countries of Burma, Malaysia and Thailand. They prefers to
live in closed primary forests, but are also found in old-growth secondary
forests, plantation forests, and urban forests. They spend most of their
time in the upper canopy levels of the forest, where they consume leaves,
although they will also consume fruit and flowers. Social play in the
dusky leaf-monkey includes wrestling, sham-biting, jumping on or over,
chasing, fleeing, and tail pulling.
i.m Nazim Hikmet
A little unknown folktale
is that Nazim Hikmet could tune
into radio transmissions using
the power of his heart alone.
Guards at Bursa Prison noticed
he used to stroke his breast
and a loud transmission
would start to come out of his
mouth. He liked to listen
to broadcasts of Shostakovich,
the news, underground speeches.
Months before he died guards
reported that he was curled up
in his cell, frantically trying
to tune into the weather report,
eager for news of thunder.
