The Golden Monkey with the Blue Face

Have you ever seen or heard of the golden snub-nosed monkey?  They live in China and are extremely endangered.  They have a beautiful gold coat, and a bright blue face.  Unfortunately, it’s their striking markings that led to their popularity with poachers.

Recently, a photographer trekking across China’s more natural areas, was able to snap this beautiful picture of the golden snub-nosed monkey.  Hopefully, this means that conservation efforts in China are having an positive impact for the gorgeous primate species.

 

Happy Monkday, everybody!
