We saw a troop of 10-20 monkeys going trough the canopy at an extremely fast pace. These Squirrel monkeys are sometimes called the “Death’s Head monkey” Because of their black-and-white face.

Our next UNE Natural History Museum 'Lockdown Specimen of the Day' is the Asiatic golden cat (Catopuma temminckii).
The Asiatic golden cat is a medium-sized cat with a discontinuous distribution from India and southern China through southeast Asia to Indonesia.  Weighing up to 16 kg, it is 2–3 times bigger than a large domestic house cat. Its diet includes small mammals like rodents, and larger prey like small deer. This specimen – our only one in the UNE Natural History Museum – shows one of the key features of pretty much any cat skull, from your household pet through to tigers and lions: an impressive set of long, sharp canine teeth. Cats quickly immobilise their prey by piercing its nerve chord, so their canines - which they drive through the back of the neck to sever the nerve chord – are longer than those from other non-feline predators of equivalent size. Two B. Zoology students on our UNE field trip to Bhutan last November were lucky enough to come face to face with a live Asiatic golden cat while they were setting camera traps.
