The rhesus monkey (Maca mulatta) at Mile 7 basecamp (see Macaque) checks out the zipper on the pocket of U Tin Maung Ohn's jacket. U Tin Maung Ohn is an Associate Professor in the Department of Botany at the University of Yangon, and during the rattan survey (see Hukaung Valley Rattan Survey) he did general collecting, helped with the specimen pressing and drying, and was a key member of the right side of the transect crew. Really nice man.
