Mystery Monkeys Of Shangri-La – The Yunnan Snub-Nosed Monkeys

Snub-nosed monkeys are hauntingly beautiful primates, different and gentler than others of their kind. Elfin-like, they seem both childlike and wise beyond their years.

The family is led by a formidable fighter and his fighting force who guard a troop of 8-10 families.This is a unique monkey society, formed in response to the hardships of the Himalayas.

But their survival depends not just upon strong defensive strategies; it also relies upon the cooperation and interdependence of them all.

The Yunnan snub-nosed monkey is the most endangered of China’s three snub-nosed monkey species.
