Gee’s golden langur takes its name from its vibrant fur, which is a darker shade of gold in the winter and cream-colored in the summer.
Apart from their fur, Gee’s golden langurs are known for having long tails which can grow up to 39 inches long, even longer than their bodies, especially in males. They use these tails to swing from one tree to another. When they are alarmed, however, they will leap from tree to tree instead.
