This picture was taken at Sariska National Park located at Rajasthan. Looking at us, the langoor rushed towards our vehicle and at one point looked threatened. I hope you like the capture and thanks for standing by.

Gray langurs or Hanuman langurs, the most widespread langurs of South Asia, are a group of Old World monkeys constituting the entirety of the genus Semnopithecus as traditionally defined, though genetic evidence suggests at least the Nilgiri and Purple-faced Langurs also belong in this genus.

Gray langurs are large and fairly terrestrial, inhabiting forest, open lightly wooded habitats, and urban areas on the Indian subcontinent. Most species are found at low to moderate altitudes, but in the Himalayas the Nepal Gray Langur and Kashmir Gray Langur occur up to 4,000 metres (13,000 ft) above sea level.

The name Hanuman langur was used to refer to several of these now separated species. They were formerly considered as subspecies of a single species, Semnopithecus entellus. In 2001 it was recommended that seven species should be recognized,though alternative treatments with fewer species exists.

These langurs are largely gray (some more yellowish), with a black face and ears. Externally the various species mainly differ in the darkness of the hands and feet, the overall color and the presence or absence of a crest.There are also significant variations in the size depending on the species, but disregarding the tail males are typically up to 75 centimetres (30 in) long and females 65 centimetres (26 in). Their tail is always longer than their body. Langurs from the southern part of their range are smaller than those from the north. At 26.5 kilograms (58 lb), the heaviest langur ever recorded was a male Nepal Gray Langur
