Gee's Golden Langur

Gee's Golden Langur or the Golden Langur are mainly found in a small region of western Assam, India and in the neighboring foothills of the Black Mountains of Bhutan. The Golden Langur was first noticed by the naturalist E. P. Gee in the 1950s.
The Golden Langur is known for its rich golden to bright cream hair, a black face and a very long tail measuring up to 50 cm in length. The long tail of the golden langur helps it in balancing itself while jumping across the branches of trees.

The Golden langur is herbivorous and its diet mainly consists of ripe and unripe fruits, mature and young leaves, seeds, buds and flowers.

These Golden Langurs are social animals and so they live in groups of 8 to 50 members. They are considered to be the endangered species and their current population is around 10,000 only.
