"Lion-tailed Macaque" troop and you will understand where their name comes from! Few other primates have such a striking characteristic as a mane of silver-white hair around their cheeks and chin and the similarities continue to the tail, which has a black tuft of fur at the end - just like that of a lion.

The rainforests of Western Ghats are home to some of the most wonderful creatures which are found only in these forests and no where else on the earth.
The striking Lion-Tailed Macaque is a symbol of that. Unfortunately it is also one of the rarest and most threatened primates.

Lion-tailed Macaques 🍑
- 𝘔𝘢𝘤𝘢𝘤𝘢 𝘴𝘪𝘭𝘦𝘯𝘶𝘴

Due to deforestation, these cheeky primates are endangered and decreasing, with less than 2,000 lion-tailed macaques in the wild.

Lion-tailed macaque
Behavior: It primarily eats indigenous fruits, leaves, buds, insects and small vertebrates in virgin forest, but can adapt to rapid environmental change in areas of massive selective logging through behavioural modifications and broadening of food choices to include fruits, seeds, shoots, pith, flowers, cones, mesocarp, and other parts of many nonindigenous and pioneer plants.

Curiosity!

A curious young male Lion Tailed Macaque came and rested on the bonnet of my car in Valparai. It was trying to find out what was moving inside. As I rolled down the window a bit, it moved in closer to inspect this weird creature inside.

The lion-tailed macaque (Macaca silenus), or the wanderoo, is an Old World monkeyendemic to the Western Ghats of South India.
The hair of the lion-tailed macaque is black. Its outstanding characteristic is the silver-white mane which surrounds the head from the cheeks down to its chin, which gives this monkey its German name Bartaffe - "beard ape". The hairless face is black in colour. With a head-body length of 42 to 61 cm and a weight of 2 to 10 kg, it ranks among the smaller macaques. The tail is medium in length at about 25 cm, and has a black tuft at the end that is similar to a lion's tail, although this tuft is more pronounced in males than in females.

Gestation is approximately six months. The young are nursed for one year. Sexual maturity is reached at four years for females, and six years for males. The life expectancy in the wild is approximately 20 years, while in captivity is up to 30 years.

Lion Tailed Macaque
The Lion-tailed Macaque (#Macaca silenus) is an Old World monkey that is endemic to the Western Ghats of South India.

Physical Characteristics
The hair of the Lion-tailed Macaque is dark-brown or black. Its outstanding characteristic is the silver-white mane which surrounds the head from the cheeks down to its chin, which gives this #monkey its German name of "Beard Ape". The hairless face is black colored. With a head-to-tail length of 45 to 60 cm and a weight of 3 to 10 kg, it ranks among the smaller macaques. The tail is medium length with a length of approximately 25 cm and is a black tuft at the end, similar to a lion's tail. The life expectancy in the wild is approximately 20 years, while in captivity up to 30 years.
Behavior
The Lion-tailed #Macaque is a diurnal rain forest dweller. It is a good climber and spends a majority of its life in the upper canopy of tropical moist evergreen forests. Unlike other macaques, it avoids humans. In group behavior, it is much like other macaques:
#Liontailedmacaque behaviour is characterized by typical patterns such as arboreal living, selectively feeding on a large variety of fruit trees, large inter-individual spaces while foraging, and time budgets with high proportion of time devoted to exploration and feeding. The Lion-tailed Macaque primarily eat indigenous fruits, leaves, buds, insects and small vertebrates in virgin forest but can adapt to rapid environmental change in areas of massive selective logging through behavioural modifications and broadening of food choices to include fruits, seeds, shoots, pith, flower, cone, mesocarp, and other parts of many non-indigenous and pioneer plants.
