Hanuman

 

(Presbytis entellus), a thin-bodied monkey of the Cercopithecidae family, order Primates. The body of the males is 60–70 cm long, with a 90–100 cm tail; the weight averages 9–11 kg. The fur is gray-brown or yellow-brown, with lighter hair around the face. The face, hands, and feet are black. The hanuman is founü in Hindustan, Kashmir, Nepal, southern Tibet, Sikkim, Assam, and Ceylon. During the day it spends much of its time on the ground, although it moves about very adroitly through the crowns of trees and can jump as far as 4–12 m. Its food is made up chiefly of leaves and fruits. Sometimes the animal damages crop plantations. In India the hanuman is considered a sacred animal.
