Golden Langurs
An Golden Langurs group observed in India had a daily activity budget of spending 30% of the time feeding, 41% of the time resting, 19% of the time moving, and 6% of the time grooming. This species will sleep in high trees, 21 to 24 meters from ground level. Daily activity consists first of waking before the sun rises above the horizon and remaining in the tree slept in for a period of time feeding, playing, resting, and moving from branch to another.

During the winter, individuals will orient themselves towards the sun to sunbath before moving to feeding trees. When the group starts to move out of the sleeping tree, they move slowly and silently, often moving in a single file.

Movement is controlled by the dominant male who will lead the group. This species, like other primates, tends to feed in the morning and in the evening, resting during the mid-day heat . The mid-day rests tend to occur on large trees with thick foliage during the summer, and on the open parts of the trees exposed to the most sunlight during the winter.
