In China, the Golden Snub-nosed Monkey is distributed in 4 provinces of Sichuan, Gansu, Shanxi, and Hubei. Among the golden monkeys, there is a big difference between males and females, and the average weight of males is about twice that of females. Besides, only the male's mouth has a glint.

The ranking of golden snub-nosed monkeys is generally as follows: patriarch (monkey king: the strongest male in the group), adult female monkeys, adult monkeys, juvenile monkeys, infant and young monkeys. Low-ranking monkeys are not free to grab those who are higher than themselves,otherwise they will be attacked by the group.

The golden snub-nosed monkey is very timid but active. It is also an animal with a strong sense of collective consciousness. In the wild, when they meet predators, the whole group will unite against them. It is hoped that such lovely animals will be increasingly loved.
