Spectacled langur, or dusky leaf monkey (Trachypithecus obscurus) at the Dallas Zoo. Rama is a male, born in 2000. He loves to eat honeysuckle, corn, oatmeal, grapes and bananas. He’s sort of aggressive, dominant, and has to be the boss. His name means ‘God of the monkeys’ and he always wants to be the center of attention, his keepers say. There are only 15 of this species in U.S. Zoos, and fewer than 70 globally. Many of the captive animals are closely related, so U.S. zoos aren’t breeding them anymore.

Endangered (IUCN) and federally endangered Francois’ langurs (Trachypithecus francoisi) at Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo. This species exhibits ‘aunting’ behavior, meaning several females will take care of the same baby. The bright orange coloration (which disappears by age six months) is thought to allow for easy tracking of the young one no matter which surrogate mom has it at any time.
