Cute monkeys of Sri Lanka

I would call Sri Lanka "a land of wild monkeys" because you can see them practically anywhere: at the Buddhist monasteries, at the Hindu temples, at the parks, among the ancient ruins and simply on the road.


There are three species of monkey in Sri Lanka. The two most common are the red-faced macaque and the grey langur. The grey langur has a black face and grey body and is usually shy of humans. The red-faced macaque on the other hand is bold: it approaches people in search of food and can be very aggressive and quick-tempered. The third type is the rare purple-faced leaf monkey or bear monkey so named for its robust body and shaggy fur. This one is usually hides in mountain forests.





Aren't they all cute?
