The Golden Snub-nosed Monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana) is an Old World monkey in the Colobinae subfamily. It is endemic to a small area in temperate, mountainous forests of central and south-western China. The Chinese name is Sichuan Golden Hair Monkey (����˿��). It is also widely referred to as the Sichuan Snub-Nosed Monkey. Snow occurs frequently within its range and it can withstand colder average temperatures than any other non-human primates. Its diet varies markedly with the seasons, but it is primarily an herbivore with lichens being its main food source. It is diurnal and largely arboreal, spending some 97% of their time in the canopy. There are three subspecies. Population estimates range from 8,000 to 15,000 and it is threatened by habitat loss.
Please note: We hope to encounter Golden snub-nosed Monkey on this trip, and there's a big opportunity to see them, however sightings of wild Golden snub-nosed Monkey cannot be guaranteed. We will not visit any of the captive "sanctuaries" - this is a trip designed to see Monkey in-the-wild.
