"Its fur will begin to darken at around three months of age, and they are usually completely black by the time they reach six months old.".The yet-to-be sexed youngster spends most of its time snuggled up to mum, but in the same way the other females behave in the wild, 'auntie' Lee Lee also helps out with babysitting duties.Francois Langurs are one of the world's rarest monkeys, and originate from northeast Vietnam and China. Classed as critically endangered, their populations are declining rapidly because of habitat loss. .This pic: Ginger Monkey                                                                                              JOB REF: 14036       SFE       DATE: 29.09.2011                                                           **MUST CREDIT SOLARPIX.COM OR DOUBLE FEE WILL BE CHARGED**                                                                      **MUST AGREE FEE BEFORE ONLINE USAGE**                               **CALL US ON: +34 952 811 768 or LOW RATE FROM UK 0844 617 7637**
