Tibetan monkeys (Macaca thibetana) live at Mt. Huangshan in Anhui province, China. They are called 'Duanweihou' in Chinese ('Duan' means short, 'wei' means tail, and 'hou' means monkey). They belong to the genus Macaca, in which Japanese monkeys (Macaca fuscata) are also included. Like Japanese monkeys, Tibetan monkeys live in multi-male multi-female groups.
