Lion Tailed Macaque

We just learned about the L'Hoests Monkey.

Another type of old world monkey is the Lion Tailed Macaque.

These monkeys are mostly black but with a big white mane, like a lion.
They live in south India, and are about 2 feet long, weighing around 22 pounds.

These monkeys mostly live in trees in the rainforest and mostly eat fruit and bugs.
