A Baby Golden Snub-Nosed Monkey | Hidden Kingdoms of China


NARRATOR: Thousands
of feet higher up, in an altogether
different type of forest, there lives another
very special creature that is also unique to China. The golden snub-nosed
monkey only lives here in the high mountain
forests of central China. [music playing] Up to 13,000 feet
above sea level, this is the world’s largest
high-altitude forest, where there are
more tree species than in any other
deciduous forest on earth. It’s spring, and these monkeys
are making the most of it. This troop has five families. Each family has one
male and several females with their young. Males that don’t belong
to these families hang out together in a
monkey bachelor gang. They’re an unruly bunch, but for
now, the focus is not on them. It’s on the latest
addition to the family, a brand-new baby girl. She happens to be the
first born this spring. So all the females in
the family want a cuddle. This auntie is first. Then auntie number
two wants a hold. And auntie number three. Enough. It’s Mom time,
meaning lunch time. In fact, all the
monkeys want lunch. At this time of year, they spend
a quarter of daylight hours eating the fresh, new leaves. A good source of protein
and their favorite food. As temperatures
rise, the monkeys follow the leaves as they
spring to life further and further up the mountain. But eventually the
trees stop growing.

  1. The golden snub-nosed monkey is a unique animal that lives only in China. What are your thoughts on this fascinating creature?

  2. The forests ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณthe trees ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ all over the world even if you cut down more and replant them it would take years for all these small trees to become bigger , donโ€™t get me wrong itโ€™s a good idea but the logging industry is cutting way to much you end up releasing massive amounts of carbon that takes far to long for the trees that are small and growing to remove the carbon footprint. What needs to happen older ground that was once forests and woodlands need replanting at an alarming rate governments and leaders of this planet are thinking more about there pockets than the environments the wildlife of this planet there creating an illusion that people think this will solve both sides and what it does it solves more towards the logging side than it does the planting side I would rather use plastic for permanent house hold stuff like tables chairs etc than wood than take the lungs away from are planet .
    Trees are a massive importance to the way we live and humans are abusing this with constant illusions and false promises.
    When you walk into a shop or a chemist and it says 99 percent etc it means 99 is better than 40 percent and that is why the 1 percent gives the businesses Leave way for a win case in a court room every time and the trouble is people believe to much rubbish by politicians and businesses the art of selling is bullish..ting .

  3. The oceans the rivers have plenty of plastic just imagine the build of plastic that been thrown into are seas for 30 40 years etc making new plastics is makings things worse a lot worse but plastic in the seas the oceans could either be used in a permanent place in houses or remelted back into oil .
    The problem with forests and woodlands ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒis the world is cutting far to many trees thatโ€™s abusing the world because of logging around this planet and this logging is releasing far to much carbon into the atmosphere and theses trees have been collecting carbon for 20-30-40 years and replanting for new trees will take years and logging is cutting faster than replanting and that is why itโ€™s a bit one sided in this world both plastic and wood are all about massive amounts of money and the people who have jobs in this department today are helping poisoning the world we live in and there also helping creating stronger hurricanes storms extreme heat ๐Ÿฅต stronger winds can you imagine what life is going to be like in ten years twenty years even lesser trees ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒlesser habitats for wildlife around the world lesser mammals reptiles animals lesser sea life and a lot more danger for humans .
    The system is build to help jobs and money circulate but not for helping environments and wildlife because it really doesnโ€™t make much money to repair environments and recycling can only be used once on a product so that doesnโ€™t really help .

  4. That was fascinating omg so real and the Womans Reading of it was excellent, loved it!! But not the baby grabbing that was hostile and very mean on a new born.
