I mean, let’s be honest.
The most iconic photo of all time.
Now that’s nice
The first photo of a Myanmar snub-nosed monkey. Discovered in 2010, it has yet to be seen alive by any scientist.
Tonkin Snub-nosed Monkey (Rhinopithecus avunculus)
Also known as Dollman’s snub-nosed monkey, the Tonkin snub-nosed monkey is a critically endangered species of colobine monkey that is endemic to northern Vietnam. Tonkin snub-nosed monkeys life in five isolated populations that inhabit limestone hills, evergreen forests and mountains. They are diurnal and live on a diet of leaves, fruits, flowers and seeds. Foraging will usually be done in the tree tops but they will forage on the ground as well.
Tonkin snub-nosed monkeys are listed as critically endangered and face major threats due to habitat loss and hunting. Currently only 200-250 individuals are known to exist.
