White-headed langur (Trachypithecus poliocephalus) is a rare endemic primates of the family martikovich. There are two subspecies blogovyh languru, one of whom lives in Vietnam and is causing the greatest concern – it is believed that these monkeys there are only about 70. But the state nature reserve bald languru, which is located in the city district Chongzuo, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous region (South China), among rocks in mountain gorge inhabits the monkey family subspecies T. p. leucocephalus is the world’s only population. In the twentieth century, the number of endemics decreased greatly because of poaching and habitat destruction, but the efforts of animal welfare activists and environmentalists led to what is now the reserve bald lungulov for more than a thousand.
Recently their number was enlarged by three more adorable kids! They were first spotted on a hillside with his parents on the reserve by one of its employees.
“When we went on patrols, we found three newborn languru. Their fur is very beautiful and similar to gold,” said Wu Shijun, an employee of the national Park bald languru.
Adults are mostly black, and their heads and shoulders have light shades, from white to yellowish. But the young these monkeys are born completely of a different color – their fur is Golden-orange. Kids get dark color only after they turn four months.
Right now, one of the females of the Chinese family of bald languru pregnant too and reserve staff expect the addition to populations of rare monkeys soon. Look at a rare baby gorilla born in an American zoo.
