Answer
The lion-tailed macaque (Macaca silenus), or the wanderoo, is an 'Old World monkey' endemic to the Western Ghats of South India. A recent assessment for IUCN reports 3000-3500 of these animals live scattered over several areas in Kerala. 
The lion-tailed macaque ranks among the rarest and most threatened primates. Lion-tailed macaque behaviour is characterized by typical patterns, such as arboreal living, selectively feeding on a large variety of fruit trees, large inter individual spaces, while foraging, and time budgets with high proportion of time devoted to exploration and feeding.
