Trachypith’ – Lutungs
Completely change their fur color when they grow up
Lutungs are medium-sized Old World monkeys primarily found in Southeast Asia. They prefer lush rainforests, although they may also be seen in mountain forests.
Langurs are nocturnal, arboreal animals. Instead of relaxing in the sweltering midday sun, they prefer to forage early in the morning and late in the day. They seldom descend to the ground and spend most of their time in the shade trees.
Although little is understood about these monkeys’ interpersonal behaviors, social grooming has been identified as a crucial group activity. By doing this, they strengthen the ties among the individuals in their organization.
Animals that use plants as food include langurs. Fruits, both ripe and unripe, mature and young leaves, seeds, buds, and flowers make up their diet.
