Managed to captured them in action 
don't you think they are adorable ?
Look at his eyes-I  really loved it
Hahahaha his about to sleep
Eric Mjoberg, wrote that “the enormous nose is a sounding board that strengthens and deepens the male’s vocal powers… The sound is deep and nasal, strongly reminiscent of the bass viol. Possibly too, there is some aesthetic touch in it, for the females find the sound attractive and crowd round their musically gifted leader.”

According the tour guide (Mr. Junjun) they are very protected to their family members. They won't
allowed any bachelor group disturbing or even come closer to his family. He will fight and make sure his family safe all the time. FYI they are not dangerous as long as you don't touch or hurt them.
