A female red-shanked douc is seen at the #mountain in Sơn Trà peninsula, Da Nang city, central Viet Nam on 24 September 2017. The red-shanked douc (Pygathrix nemaeus) is a species of Old World monkey, among the most colourful of all primates. This monkey is sometimes called the "costumed ape" for its extravagant appearance. From its knees to its ankles it sports maroon-red "stockings", and it appears to wear white forearm length gloves. Its attire is finished with black hands and feet.
There are approximately 400 doucs now in Sơn Trà peninsula which is only 5 miles from centre of Da Nang, the country's 3rd biggest city and also a new hotspot for tourism with many new built hotels and resorts. Some have just constructed in the Son Tra peninsula nearby the home of the red-shanked doucs.
