Assam Macaque of Bhutan

The Assam Macaque (Macaca assamensis) is a species of monkey found in South and Southeast Asia. Their numbers are in decline due to human activities and development, including land clearing, hunting and logging.

I had a chance to have a quick look at this species in one of the highway in Bhutan in April 2013. As we were in a car, not too many photo opportunities.
