Hanuman Langur by Saurabh Sawant

This young Hanuman langur Semnopithecus entellus is relatively safe from predators in this cosy hideaway. The monkeys live and feed off these trees. The trees, defend their leaves by producing toxins to dissuade the langurs, who in turn, are experts at selecting the least toxic parts of the plants, new shoots and buds and ripe fruit for instance. Scientists suggest that as many as 70 different species of trees may be visited by langurs to feed in a year.
