Colour - Brown or Grey with Pink face.
Tail - 20.7cm to 22.9cm
Teeth - 32 teeth; Formula -
Distribution - India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, Burma etc...

The name 'Rhesus' is reminiscent of Greek mythological King 'Rhesus'.

Hello Srikumar,
An attractive image of this cute monkey as it checks out a potential meal. I love the intense look it has on it's face as it studies every part of the bright red fruit. Focus is sharp and colors are well saturated yet natural. Nicely composed in a vertical frame and showing just the right amount of exposure.
