Golden Snub-Nosed Monkey
Common Name: Golden Snub-Nosed Monkey
Bionomial Nomenclature: Rhinopithecus Roxellana
Threatend or endangered?- The golden snub-nosed monkey is threatend by the many hunters who want their golden fur and the greatest concern is the disappearing forest. Similarly, the tree-dwelling Golden Snub-nosed Monkey is having a hard time to search for food and raise its children.
Habbitat: Golden Snub-nosed Monkeys only live in the forests of China. Limited to temperate forests.

Enemies and Survival
What does the golden snub-nosed monkey eat?
Their enemy is mainly the clouded leopard that feeds off of them.
They are considered both a prey and predator.
Varied diet.
Ranges from tree leaves, pine and fir needles, bamboo shoots, buds, fruits, lichens, tree bark, insects, worms, small birds and their eggs.
Climate is a major abiotic predator of the monkey.
Abiotic Factors:
Climate: Warm all year round
Rainfall: 80-150in.
Average temp: 68-84 degrees farenhite
rocks, soil, and, water

Largely in trees, although golden monkeys also spend a great deal of time on the ground.
Biomes: Forest
Deciduous trees.
They only live in the temperate forests on the mountains: Sichuan, Gansu, Shaanxi, and Hubei in China.
They are said to have the largest herd among tree-dwelling monkeys.
Biotic Factors:
Epiphytes: Perch on other plants to live.
Warm weather: They are threatened for the hunt of their golden fur for warmth, so if it is already warm the hunters will not need their "coats"
Trees: Monkeys can hide from predators.
Conservation and Future
Golden Fur
Blue colored face
Body length: 66-76cm
Tail length: 56-72cm
Weight: Male 16.4kg / Female 9.4kg
Thick coat
Bushy Tail
Distinctive nose
Wide set eyes
Polygynous mating system
The dominant adult male can mate with all of the adult females in his group.
Mating is almost always instigated by the female.
After a gestation period of approximately six months, a mother usually gives birth to a single offspring.
1 baby every 2 to 3 years
Stay with Family when born
Mothers find food for them
can reproduce at the age of 5-7.
Babies are to be snuggled by their mothers to keep warm.
Symbiotic Relationships in Nature
The monkey and the people of china are working together to protect the species
The branches of trees help the monkey swing from place to place
Plants eaten by the golden monkey soon die for new plants to grow.
sunlight allows the trees to grow so the golden snub-nosed monkey can maneuver from place to place.
plundering food
General Behavior
Loving and caring to young
Fast when capturing prey
Males are aggressive when mating
They swing from place to place quickly as if they soar.
Interesting facts
It is endemic to a small area in temperate, mountainous forests of central and Southwest China.
They inhabit these mountainous forests of Southwestern China at elevations of 1,500-3,400 m above sea level. The Chinese name is Sichuan golden hair monkey.
It is also widely referred to as the Sichuan snub-nosed monkey.
Of the three species of snub-nosed monkeys in China, the golden snub-nosed monkey is the most widely distributed throughout China.
Human Importance:
They want to make fur coats out of their hair so they may sell them and get money for the economy.
People also like to hunt them down for pleasure like they do for deer in America.
The major threat is habitat loss. Secondarily, there is a serious threat from continued illegal hunting of this subspecies. There is also harassment owing to tourist activities, including the herding of troops for tourists to view.
Population estimates range from 8,000 to 15,000 and is mostly threatened by habitat loss.
Their species is slowing decreasing
People of Chine are trying to protect them
if the threatening continues then they could become extinct.
