Lion-tailed macaque

Macaca silenus

Lion-tailed macaque, Anaimalai


We observed this gang of LTM just before we reached Valparai. They were gorging on Jack fruits from the trees on the rain forest by the side of the road and that is when this individual decided to come down and strike a pose with his tail up. The name Lion Tailed Macaque is because of the similar looking tail of the Macaque and the Lion.
