Giving Leopards a break! There are 3 species of monkeys in Sri Lanka, namely Tufted gray langur, Purple-faced leaf monkey and Toque macaque. The infant gray langur seen above can also be found in India. Gray langurs are confined to the dry zones of Sri Lanka. Monkeys live in family groups comprising 6-10 individuals. However, larger groups up to about 25 individuals are not uncommon especially in gray langurs. Group consist of related mature females, sub-adults, juveniles and infants of both sexes, with dominant unrelated male. The dominant male usually act as a leader of the group constantly watching the group movements and activities. Many villagers that are living in the remote areas of Sri Lanka and buffer zones consider monkeys as pests due to their crop raiding behavior.
