Many new species of animals have been discovered in Myanmar in recent years. As one of them, a new species of monkey called Popa langur has been discovered in recent years. However, with an estimated population of around 200, they are extremely difficult to find. Of course, it is also a rare species, so it is also designated as an endangered species.
The Popa Langur lives in Myanmar.
Poppa Langur is a monkey family discovered in Myanmar around 2020. However, since it is a new species, not much is known about it. The weight is about 8 kg, and the size is medium. The back is dark brown or grey-brown and the limbs are black. The face is very distinctive, with a distinctive white ring around the eye. The Popa Langur has a longer tail than other monkeys and a long hair on the top of its head. Popa langurs are known to live in trees and may even come down to the ground to hunt. However, the current situation is that there is a general lack of research and detailed information is not known. The Popa Langur is a rather rare species that can only be seen near Mount Popa in Myanmar.
Like other monkeys, Popa Langur seems to live on fruits and nuts. We don’t know much about the lifespan and ecology because we don’t know much about it. According to Fauna and Flora International, an international conservation charity, popa langurs are estimated to have existed for over a million years.
Poppa Langur is a new species discovered around 2020, and until then it was an animal that was not recognized by humans. The reason why it has not been discovered until now is that it is wild in the first place, and the population is extremely small. Moreover, this monkey was not found in the field, but in a laboratory. After its discovery, the monkey was subjected to phylogenetic studies to understand its taxonomic relationship with other species of the same genus. This monkey is designated as an endangered species due to its low population. In recent years, urbanization, land development, deforestation, petting and illegal trade have endangered the species. The Mount Popa forest habitat has been officially declared a protected area by the Myanmar government.
The Popa Langur is a protected animal, so it is almost impossible for the general public to keep it. You have to go to Myanmar or go to the zoo.
