Golden Snub-Nosed Monkey
Family: Old World monkeys
Habitat: China, Vietnam, Myanmar
Got your nose! You can only see the snub-nosed monkey’s nostrils - unlike the proboscis and the elephant seal. The golden snub-nosed monkey is found in very cold areas with long winters and lots of snow. They hang out in forests and mountain areas, where the temperature is between 18 and 25 degrees Fahrenheit (-8 and -4 degrees Celsius) in winter and around 43-45 degrees Fahrenheit (6-7 degrees Celsius) all year round. They are the only primates that can survive such low temperatures. Biologists believe that the cold would mean a bigger nose would freeze. Let’s just hope they blow their noises every now and then, otherwise you’d see every single booger!
