Information about the Lion-Tailed Macaque:
The Lion-Tailed Macaque - also called the Wanderoo, is an Old World monkey native to the rainforests of the Western Ghats in South India. It spends majority of its life in the upper canopy of tropical forests. Unlike other macaques, it tends to avoids humans. In group behavior, it is much like other macaques; it lives in hierarchical groups of usually 10 to 20 animals, which consist of few males and many females. It is a territorial animal, defending its area first with loud cries towards the invading troops. Lion-tailed macaque behavior is characterized by typical patterns such as arboreal living, selectively feeding on a large variety of fruit trees, large interindividual spaces while foraging, and time budgets with high proportion of time devoted to exploration and feeding. 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 behavioral modifications and broadening of food choices to include fruits, seeds, shoots, pith, flowers, cones, mesocarp, and other parts of many nonindigenous and pioneer plants. Due to habitat loss there are estimated to be only a few thousand in the wild.
