Common Langur (Semnopithecus entellus), Chitwan National Park, Nepal
A conspicuous monkey, Common Langurs are widespread with 16 sub-species recognised throughout South Asia. Their range extends from as high as over 3500m in the Himalayas to the scrub forests of Western Rajasthan and throughout the deciduous forests of peninsular India. They do not inhabit evergreen forests. They are quite often seen in proximity to human habitation and are a prominent feature of some cities and many small towns throughout India.
