A family of capped langurs was filmed in the Gaoligong Mountains National Nature Reserve, Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China's Yunnan Province. This is the largest troop of such species ever recorded in the nature reserve.

Staff members analyzed the footage based on the social organization of the troop and found out that the family consisted of two adult males, five adult females, and six infants.

The capped langur, scientifically named "trachypithecus pileatus," is a species of primate that mainly inhabits subtropical or tropical dry forests.
