behavior

The golden snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana) lives in the coniferous montane forests of central China at elevations of 1,800–2,700 metres (6,000–9,000 feet), where the temperature drops below freezing in winter and rises only to about 25 °C (77 °F) in summer. They have rich golden brown to golden red fur, and the tail is about the same length as the body. Males have a long mantle of black and golden hairs on the back

diet

fruit, like banana,apple,peach

status

There are some 8,000 to 10,000 golden snub-nosed monkeys in the wild, and they are not in immediate danger of extinction. The black and gray species, however, number fewer than 1,500 each; the gray is protected, but the black is hunted, and its habitat is being deforested to provide cattle pasture. The Tonkin is one of the most-endangered primates in the world, having little effective protection and a total population below 250.

Interesting fact

They have rich golden brown to golden red fur, and the tail is about the same length as the body.
