Black-footed gray langur
|Black-footed gray langur|
|Black-footed Gray Langur range|
The black-footed gray langur was previously considered to be a subspecies of Semnopithecus entellus. Research done in 2003 by Brandon-Jones may indicate that it is a subspecies of Semnopithecus dussumieri. Some experts believe that the species may be a naturally occurring hybrid of Trachypithecus johnii and Semnopithecus dussumieri.
This black-footed gray langur is distributed throughout south-western India (Goa, Karnataka and Kerala), but is centred on the Western Ghats. Its total range is around 35,000 km2, with the species living inside and outside of protected areas.
It is classified as vulnerable due to a predicted (as of 2008) 30% decline in population that is expected to happen within three generations or about 30 years.
