Langur (Semnopithecus)


Gray langur also called Hanuman langur. Gray langurs are fairly terrestrial, inhabiting forest, open lightly wooded habitats, and urban areas. These langurs are largely gray (some more yellowish), with a black face and ears. Langurs mostly walk quadrupedally and spend half their time on the ground and the other half in the trees. They will also make bipedal hops, climbing and descending supports with the body upright. They eat coniferous needles and cones, fruits and fruit buds, evergreen petioles, shoots and roots, seeds, grass, bamboo, fern rhizomes, mosses, and lichens. Leaves of trees and shrubs rank at the top of preferred food, followed by herbs and grasses.
