The Golden Father and Son
Golden Langur, the living gold, has a narrow distribution range. It is found only in Assam and neighbouring Bhutan. It probably evolved in geographic isolation on the western side of the Manas river. Golden Langurs are shy species that avoids humans. They inhabit in mixed deciduous to semi-deciduous moist Sal forest with some riverine and savanna forest. This old world primate is one of the major endangered species still found in the “Eastern Himalayas Bio-Diversity Hotspot” of India.
