Langurs are medium sized Old World monkeys. They reside in the forests of Asia, from India to Indonesia. Species include the endangered Javan lutung, Golden langur and Grey or Hanuman Langur. The monkeys are predominantly leaf eaters and also eat fruit and flowers. They are gregarious animals and live in large groups. Their main predators include tigers, leopards and snakes such as pythons. The main threat to langurs is habitat loss and the pet trade. In India, the monkeys play a large role in Hindu culture and are regarded as the living embodiment of the monkey god, Hanuman. This means they are allowed to roam the streets and cause damage and no harm comes to them.
