Snub nosed monkeys are known for their striking golden fur, their pale blue faces, and their unique, extremely short noses. The reason for their distinctive nose is unknown, though some scientists believe it may help reduce the risk of frostbite in their extremely cold habitats.
Snub nosed monkeys live high in the mountains of China, sometimes over two miles above sea level. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) lists these primates as Endangered, due largely to habitat loss. This monkey is a very picky eater, preferring lichen that grows on dead trees. When these trees are cleared or harvested, the lack of food causes damage to the primate population.
