The Endangered golden snub-nosed monkey has long been hunted for use in traditional medicines, with the pelt of the species once thought to prevent rheumatism, as well as for its fur and meat. Today, this hunting continues with this exploitation compounded by the ongoing loss of its forest habitat. This species is endemic to western-central China, where it lives in deciduous broadleaved & coniferous forests in the provinces of Sichuan, Gansu, Hubei and Shaanxi.
