"Big Green Monkey" appeared in Zhaotong, Yunnan Province

On the edge of a bamboo forest rock in Minzheng Village, Miaoba Town, Yanjin County, Zhaotong, Yunnan, a big monkey recently came. I saw that it had strong hair, black-brown color, thick body and well-developed limbs. It squatted on the rock, sometimes scratching its cheeks, sometimes catching lice. The news of the monkeys found in the bamboo forest spread among the villagers at once, so many villagers came to watch and take pictures curiously. Some villagers were afraid that the monkey would be hungry, so they brought apples, pears, drinks and other food from their homes to feed the monkey. And the monkeys don't seem to be afraid of life. At first, they were a little cautious about the arrival of people. After seeing the food, they were no longer restrained, but quickly ate. According to people familiar with the matter, this big monkey is a Tibetan chief monkey, also known as the big green monkey and the horse monkey. The big green monkey found in Yanjin County, Zhaotong, Yunnan, has dull skin and pigmentation on its face. Judging from this situation, it should be an older monkey. This is the third time that Yanjin has discovered the phenomenon of big green monkeys. In 2016, a forest ranger from Shizi Town, Yanjin County found and rescued an injured big green monkey while patrolling the mountain; and In 2019, a large green monkey was found in Dousha Town, Yanjin County, breaking into a villager's home and was bitten by a dog, and was rescued later.

The stature is thick and strong, with a characteristic beard

Compared to the average monkey, the big green monkey looks relatively It is stout and can weigh 12-18 kg in adulthood, with a body length of 60-75 cm, a relatively large head, and well-developed and robust limbs. The hair on the big green monkey is mainly dark brown, but the color of the hair is lighter when it is young. Their scientific name is "Tibetan Chieftain Monkey", but don't be misled by the word "Tibetan", thinking that it is a unique animal in Tibet, but in fact the big green monkey is not produced in Tibet. The two biggest features of this monkey are its tail and face. Their tails are very short, only one-tenth of their body length, much shorter than the tails of ordinary macaques. They have thick whiskers on their cheeks and chins that look like whiskers. Based on these two characteristics of the big green monkey, some scholars even believe that their name should be called "hairy macaque". The big green monkey likes to inhabit the forest area or rocky environment at an altitude of 1500-2500 meters. As we all know, the most important unique skill in Sichuan Opera is to change face, you know? Big green monkeys also change their faces, but they can only change three times in their lifetime. When they are young, their complexion is paler; when they reach adulthood, they become much ruddy; and in old age, the skin on the face of the big green monkey tends to be dark purple, and age spots will grow. So in addition to looking at the color of the coat, you can roughly judge the age of a big green monkey by looking at its face.

It is quite courageous, and it is not afraid to see people coming

We often use "splashing monkeys" to describe some monkeys who are more daring and wanton, no doubt, big The green monkey is a kind of "splashing monkey". They are more courageous and are one of the closest macaques to humans in the world. Unlike other animals, they are afraid to run away after seeing humans. Sometimes they even dare to take the initiative to approach humans. For example, this big green monkey found in the bamboo forest of Yanjin County, except for showing a certain degree of vigilance when it was first watched, it is not restrained at all after that. After being fed by humans, in addition to eating boldly, he also interacted with humans. Most primates live in groups, and the big green monkeys are no exception. They usually live in groups, and the groups formed are relatively large, most of which range from a dozen to thirty, and a small number of monkey groups can even reach Hundreds. In the monkey group, there is a male monkey with the largest size and the strongest strength as the "head monkey". The number of head monkeys in some large monkey groups may reach 2-3, depending on the situation. The head monkey is very ferocious. In addition to coming forward when it encounters enemies, it also organizes groups of monkeys to fight. For example, in Lopburi, Thailand, there was a phenomenon of two gangs of macaques fighting each other. Under the organization of the head monkey, the two sides fought a large-scale group fight with hundreds of participating members.

Don't disturb, don't feed, beware of being a rogue monkey

The big green monkey is one of the macaques that is least afraid of humans. It is naturally close to humans, but people need Grasp this "degree", and once you exceed this "degree", things can go bad. There has always been a population of macaques living on Mount Emei, and they also lived a normal wild life earlier. But since Mount Emei was opened to the public, tourists who came to play saw that the monkeys here did not seem to be afraid of people, so they began to feed them. Gradually, the eating habits of the monkeys on Mount Emei were changed. Compared with the rough and unpalatable wild food, the refined food brought by humans is not only delicious, but also easy to come by. The mouths of these big green monkeys have been raised and their bodies have been raised. They are entrenched on the mountain roads, waiting for tourists to feed them. As the population of monkeys grows and the number increases, it is obvious that tourists' active feeding is not enough, so some monkeys fight, in addition to fighting for food, they also reach out to tourists. If you don't give it, you will grab it, take the initiative to pull the tourists' bags, and rummage through the contents. Gradually, the big green monkey here has been crowned with the title of "rogue monkey". The reason must be blamed on tourists. It is precisely because of long-term feeding that has changed their original foraging habits and way of life. So if you see monkeys, the best way is not to disturb or feed them. When the monkey was found in the bamboo forest of Yanjin County, it attracted many villagers, many of whom were feeders. Although people and monkeys seem to be enjoying the process, beware of pampering them as rogue monkeys, as the monkeys on Mount Emei are a good example. The big green monkey is a very ferocious type of macaque. If you come into contact with it, you may be attacked if you are not careful. You must be careful. In addition, as a wild animal, it is unknown whether it carries some germs. Follow me and make a friend who understands animals.
