Family Photo Time

Your Shot photographer Trang Nguyen captured this image of a family of red-shanked douc who paused for a moment to pose for his camera. “The red-shanked douc is a species of old world monkey, among the most colorful of all primates,” writes Nguyen. “They live in on the Son Tra Peninsula, Danang, Vietnam. They have become the symbol of Danang city, although there are some concerns that recent development of resorts will endanger the habitat of the red-shanked douc. Scientists have proposed to add the red shanked douc onto the list of critically endangered species for stricter protection.” Photo posted on natgeoyourshot on Instagram.
