Last week's #MysteryCreature was an infant #Golden #Snub-nosed #Monkey ( #Rhinopithecus roxellana). R. roxellana is an Old World monkey endemic to the mountainous forests of #China. Adult golden snub-nosed monkeys are covered in long, golden hair with the hair on their arms and legs a deep brown. Snub-nosed monkeys are #sexually #dimorphic with females being about half the size of males. These monkeys gather in groups of 5-10 individuals led by an alpha male. Many groups can form bands of as many as 600-members. Snub-nosed monkeys are vegetarians and seasonally feed on lichens, leaves, fruits, seeds, flowers, and bark. Peak mating occurs in #October. Females give birth to a single offspring after a 6-7 month #gestation. All members of the group work together to protect infants and juveniles.

Monkeys living in cold snowy habitats adjust their nutrient intake to match the elevated costs of #thermoregulation. We discuss nutrient-specific compensation in #Rhinopithecus in our recently accepted paper in the journal #FunctionalEcology #GoldenSnubNosedMonkeys #Primatology #MonkeysInTheSnow #NutrientBalancing #NutritionalGeometry #FeedingBehavior #Ecology #China

Tonkin Snub-nosed monkey. The most challenging monkey I've seen but also my favorite. (Not ape, you're still safe for now Javan gibbon)

The king of Khau Ca - Rhinopithecus Avunculus. Thought to be extinct up until the 1990's and one of the most critically endangered primates in the world, the Tonkin snub-nosed monkey was top of my list for a long time. If someone ever tried to make the best monkey they would make a Tonkin snub-nosed monkey. The blue face, big pink lips, upturned nose, ridiculous tail, big wooly fur coat, and yellow throat patch. Vietnam's biggest monkey too. #tonkinsnubnosedmonkey #primate #iucnredlist #criticallyendangered #monkey #rhinopithecus #tonkin #vietnam #endangeredspecies #hagiang #wildlifeaddicts #nature #bucketlist #wildlifeonearth #picoftheday #wildlifeplanet #animallovers #primatesofinstagram #forest #wildlifephotography #khauca #igscwildlife #wildlife #animaladdicts #travel #monkeysofinstagram #natgeowildlife #asia

A huge highlight - at least for me as a biologist - of our China trip: Black and Golden Sub-nosed monkeys. These primates are endemic to China and cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. They are very rare with only few remaining populations in the wild. #monkey #monkeysofinstagram #snubnosedmonkey #goldensnubnosedmonkey #blacksnubnosedmonkey #china #beijingzoo #primates #zoology #animalphotography #animals #monkeybaby #rhinopithecus #zoo #animalportrait #endangeredspecies #photography #animalsoftheworld

猴科仰鼻猴属有5种,川金丝猴、滇金丝猴、黔金丝猴、越南金丝猴、缅甸金丝猴,最喜欢滇金丝猴和川金丝猴,因为长得实在漂亮还憨态可掬,其中滇金丝猴比川金丝猴还要稀少,因其生存环境仅在四川、云南和西藏三省的交界处才有,平时生活在海拔4000米左右的高山林地。滇金丝猴和大熊猫一样都是国宝,主要栖息在云南省迪庆藏族自治州的白马雪山国家级自然保护区,近年来随着生态环境不断改善、保护工作有效推进,该保护区内的滇金丝猴数量不断增多,目前看不到官方发布的确切增加数据。2013年8月7日,中法生物学家联合考察团在经过多天的实地考察和分析研究后对记者透露,中国的滇金丝猴数量已增至3000多只。 #Rhinopithecus #金丝猴 #滇金丝猴 #川金丝猴 #云南 #迪庆 #白马雪山 #四川 #西藏

The remote hills of Ha Giang Province, shrouded in mist and rain for much of the year, contain the world's last populations of the Tonkin snub nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus avunculus) Words can't describe what it was like to finally see them come swinging out of the mist after five days of hiking and climbing through the limestone forest of Khau Ca. Only 250 remain and to be able to spend almost two hours with a group of them was a dream come true. Goosebumps yo. Also a million thanks to Quyet, Luc, Tan, Khoan, Zhoi and everyone else. (My instagram is not going to be a good place to be for the foreseeable future if you're not a fan of Tonkin snub nosed monkeys. Fortunately they are the best and everyone is/ should be) #Tonkin #snub #monkey #rhinopithecus #avunculus #primatewatching #wildlifephotography #animal #vietnam #khauca #limestone #forest #endangeredspecies #wildanimal #criticallyendangered #primate #lips #travel #travel #trekking #animallovers #tonkinsnubnosedmonkey #nature #naturephotography #mammal #natgeowildlife #animalsofinstagram #wildlife #dreamcometrue #monkeysofinstagram #hagiang

No one could guess it right! Haha. It was not a pine martin, nor a koala, nor a panda, nor a skunk, nor a badger! The ones who said baboon, chimpanzee and gibbon, at least guessed the order Primate 😆 It was a Yunnan snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus bieti)! The most endangered China's subnosed monkey! Their diet consists the most in lichens, although it is poor nutritionally, and hard to find, especially since it takes to regenerate between 10 to 15 years! ____ Nadie pudo adivinarlo bien jaja! No era un lemur de cola anillada ni una mofeta ni un panda! Era un langur negro de nariz chata! El langur de nariz chata más amenazado de China! Su dieta consiste mayormente de líquen, aunque es muy pobre nutricionalmente, además de ser difícil de encontrar, en especial considerando que tarda de 10 a 15 años en regenerarse!

This is one crazy looking primate! The Tonkin snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus avunculus) is one of the most endangered primates in the world. In fact it was thought to be extinct, until it's rediscovery in 1989. There are estimated to be only 200-250 individuals left in the wild!! (A pitiful number in conservation terms). Recognisable due to the flat upturned nose, pale blue rings around he eyes and thick pink lips, this species has an almost comical appearance. It is a diurnal species, travelling through the canopy on all fours, climbing,leaping or hanging from tree branches. It is endemic to Vietnam and is the only Rhinopithecus species found outside of China. It is listed as Critically Endangered (step below extinct in the wild) and has been in the worlds 25 most endangered primates since it's inception in 2000. Threats include hunting for traditional medicine and meat. They're not particularly shy either, so do not flee when encountered by humans. Habitat degradation also counts for their decline.

While the species is new to science the local people know it well and claim that it is very easy to find when it is raining because the monkeys often get rainwater in their upturned noses causing them to sneeze. To avoid getting rainwater in their noses they spend rainy days sitting with their heads tucked between their knees 
