For instance, langurs from the Himalayas weigh between 16 and 28 kg whereas those from the peninsular region have a weight of 9 to 16 kg. A slight colour difference can also be noticed in langurs in accordance with their habitat. Langurs of the Deccan region are pale in colour. The langurs inhabiting the southeast Indian parts are almost white. Those that reside in rainy regions have a darker colour.

The population of langurs is quite well distributed throughout India. From the Himalayas in the north to Kanyakumari in far south, langurs can be found everywhere. During winters in the Himalayas, the snow-laden pine and fir trees make up the habitat of a langur. One can spot langurs in forests, shady groves and around temples and tanks. The langurs are mostly seen in groups of 15 to 25. They reproduce once every two years.

The family of a hoolock gibbon moves from treetop to treetop everyday. For spending nights, they prefer sheltered valleys. The hoolock gibbon basically feeds on fruit, leaves, spiders, grubs and other insects. Their howl can be heard in warm sunlight. If the day is hot, the species likes to rest under shady trees without making a noise. Mating occurs in the early rainy season and breeding takes place between December and March.
