Wildlife Monkey - Shangri-La Monkeys

  • Published 1 year ago

Monkeys are found naturally in the jungles and forests of the Southern Hemisphere. There are around 260 known species of monkeys worldwide. They range from chimpanzees to the tiny pigmy marmoset.

Shangri-La monkeys represent a family of Yunnan snub-nosed monkeys living in the highest forests in the world. They are strangely beautiful.

And they are as endangered as the Giant panda. These rare black and white snub-nosed monkeys live in the far eastern corner of the Himalayas. They have been cut off from the modern world for centuries.

They live at an altitude of 4,000m, first confirmed in the 1960s, and then first filmed in the 1980s by a famous Chinese photographer.

They are odd looking with upside-down noses, huge red lips, and haunting almond eyes. This documentary gives you a look in their life, a rare opportunity to marvel at the beauty of the wildlife.
