How a monkey mother takes care of her children



Phayre's leaf monkeys  (Trachypithecus phayrei) have long, slender tails and glass-rimmed eyes coated in silver-blue fur. They weave in and out of the dense woods, hanging upside down, frolicking merrily, eating wild fruit, and drinking water by the stream. 

A group of Phayre's leaf monkeys were recently spotted and captured on camera in Dehong, southwest China's Yunnan Province. 

The Phayre's leaf monkey is one of China's most endangered wild animals and is on the International Union for Conservation of Nature red list. They are predominantly found in the tropical, deciduous and evergreen forests of northeastern India, eastern Bangladesh and Myanmar. In China, they are found only in the southern and southwestern parts of Yunnan.
