The Chinese Golden Monkey—Husbandry and Reproduction
The golden monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellanae) is in the family Colobidae. It became known to the world in the latter part of the nineteenth century. In 1956, the golden monkey was first displayed in the Beijing Zoo, followed by zoos in Guangzhou, Chengdu, and Shanghai. In November 1979, a pair was loaned to Ocean Park (Hong Kong) from the Beijing Zoo for a 3-month period. This was the first time golden monkeys had been exhibited outside mainland China. It was reported that both the Lanzhou University and Wudu in Gansu had hand raised and bred the golden monkey successfully in April 1959.
