In the wild, Golden Snub Nosed Monkeys spend 97% of their time in the trees and live in widely ranging social units from just five individuals to over six hundred! These Old World monkeys live primarily off lichen. Unfortunately loggers in China remove the dead trees that produce the tastiest and most abundant lichens, steadily destroying this beautiful primate's habitat. These pictures were taken at Korea's Everland Zoo by In Cherl Kim this past November and December.
