The Myanmar snub-nosed monkey, or Rhinopithecus strykeri, is a critically endangered species found in northern Myanmar. Some local people claimed that they found its trail on the tree branches, but never caught it, so it is still considered a new species. It is distinctive for its mostly black fur and white beard, and especially for sneezing whenever it rains. It tries to avoid rainwater dripping into its turned-up nose by hiding its face between its knees.
