The main thing that this golden snub-nosed monkey wants is more.

Berries are a delicious treat for a monkey that is used to snacking on nothing but leafy greens all day.

The golden snub-nosed monkey is an endangered species that is only found in the wilds of southwestern China.
They live way up in the Tibetan Plateau where their habitat range extends as high as 13,123 feet. These monkeys often live in the snow for up to four months out of the year!

Due to the extreme elevations, they’ve had to develop a really thick coat of fur, which is part of what makes them so cute to us silly humans. Their fluffy fur, from our perspective, gives the monkey features similar to a plush stuffed animal! The golden snub-nosed monkey looks so huggable!

Although, if you were to encounter one of them in the wild or in a zoo, it’s still important to approach with caution.
Like all primates, golden snub-nosed monkeys can be unpredictable and are much stronger than they appear at first glance. We need not mention the risks involved in feeding them either. Only professionals that are trained in dealing with wildlife species should ever attempt to feed berries to one of these beautiful monkeys.

All in all, though, this one seems pretty chill.
As he meanders along the sidewalk, he demands more and more berries. After each bite, he throws up his hands, asking for another.

As an herbivore, the golden snub-nosed monkey loves a diet rich in fruits, buds, leaves, and flowers. All things healthy and sweet, it can’t get enough of!


When things get dire, the golden snub-nosed monkey often eats pine needles and lichen from tree bark, or even the tree bark itself. In the heart of the winter, imagine four long months of this. That’s probably why he gets so excited upon the sight of the berries. For him, they are like a delicacy.

Some people on YouTube noticed something else as well.

“He looks like he’s going to give a fist bump and say ‘thanks bro’ before walking away,” says commenter Mable Valley.
