Listed as 'Endangered ' on IUCN red list.
Mainly arboreal, this species prefers the upper canopy of primary tropical evergreen rain forest. Interesting fact being only the alpha male and alpha female mate and the female gives birth once in 3 years. They face habitat destruction one of the reasons being due to roads and railways lines being built but cutting down the canopies these monkeys use. This results in them coming in contacts with vehicles which pose as a constant danger to their lives.
