Golden Snub Nosed Monkey Endangered in their native home in Central China, these beautiful monkeys spend almost their entire life in the trees. The golden snub nosed monkey's vegetarian diet of lichens, flowers, seeds, bark and fruit, seems to complement their thoughtful expressions. Unfortunately, this colorful species is endangered due to deforestation. Specifically, their favorite tasty lichens typically grow on dead trees and these are the ones that are often harvested for firewood and other uses. This picture was captured by the inimitable In Cherl Kim at the Everland Zoo in Korea.
