Golden monkeys are small, smaller than Gorillas and Chimpanzees, however their Golden color mixed with silver makes them a rare spectacle. They spend their days feeding in Bamboo trees jumping from one to the other high in the trees.
Today, the total number of Golden monkeys are just about 4000 in the wild and as a result, they are labeled as Endangered by IUCN(International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List.
