Lion in the Trees

The lion-tailed macaque is part of the Cercopithecidae family, which includes 81 different monkey species. The macaque has lion-like features; one of which being its tail, which is one-third to one-half the length of its body.

Bonus fact: Because the lion-tailed macaque lives in trees, its source of water comes from moisture found on the trees’ leaves.
