Nepal Gray Langur

Nepal Gray Langur

The Nepal Gray langur, also known as the Hanuman langur, is a large and fascinating primate species found in Nepal. They have a grayish-brown coat and a black face with prominent cheekbones. They are known for their long and muscular limbs and a prehensile tail, which they use to navigate through trees.

Nepal Gray langurs are herbivores and primarily feed on leaves, fruits, and flowers. They are social animals and live in groups of up to 30 individuals, which are led by dominant males. The females give birth to a single infant after a gestation period of six months.

These primates are mostly arboreal and can be seen jumping from tree to tree with remarkable agility. They are also known for their vocalizations, which include grunts, barks, and screams.

Nepal Gray langurs are not considered endangered, but their populations are declining due to habitat loss and fragmentation. Conservation efforts are underway to protect their habitats and reduce human-wildlife conflict.

If you spot a Nepal Gray langur on your wildlife safari in Nepal, you are sure to be amazed by its acrobatic abilities and complex social behaviors.
