Animals as art in the Qinling Mountains
A golden snub-nosed monkey remains on the alert as it leans over to drink water. Golden snub-nosed monkeys mainly live in mountain forests of coniferous and broad leaved trees. They are gregarious and feed on wild fruits, shoots and leaves. They have an estimated population of 3,000 to 5,000. In summer, they live at high-altitude, around three kilometers, while in winter or early spring, they live at about two kilometers. There are only a few dozen golden snub-nosed monkeys in zoos in China.
