The Yannan snub-nosed monkey, a very rare weirdly nosed monkey from China that they didn't "discover" until the 1990s. It's diet consists of lichen which takes 10-15 years to recover which means they have to wander over a very large range. They also are the primate that lives at the highest elevation, except for man.
