The temperatures in Uthai Thani have dropped to 12-14 celsius up the hills and 16-18 on the ground in the morning. The chill has an negative impact on their habitat in the Pattawee mountain, a well-known tourist attraction. Many monkeys, especially mothers and cubs, were seen cuddling under the sun in groups close to the ground. Drought has also hit the province, reducing their food source.
In the areas of Phra Prang Sam Yot and San Phra Kan Shrine, Lop Buri, local monkeys were seen gathering in shelters. Residents in the areas said baby monkeys were heard crying in the cold weather.
