Jaipur is one of the city in India where you will find the most variety of animal species within its walls. Indeed Rajasthan is quite a conservative state and as in Hinduism people believe in Karma, it's part of everyone daily life to take care of animals in order to get a beautiful afterlife!
Let's have a view of Jaipur's many animals:
There is two main species of monkeys in Jaipur city, the Grey Langurs also called Hanuman monkeys, mostly in Amber and the Rhesus macaque that can be found anywhere in the Pink City. The Grey Langurs can be recognized by their black faces and long tails, they're actually really friendly and are used to the company of men, so don't be scared to feed them, some times they will even jump on you !
The Rhesus macaques on the contrary are bad news. They can be spotted by their pink faces, those ones can really be aggressive and are well organized. Don't get near and keep your doors locked or they'll definitely come inside to find some food. They can be seen everywhere in the city and especially in Galta Ji temple also known as the Monkey Temple. If you want to learn more about those ones we invite you to check the National Geographic's show ''Monkey Thieves'', about a gang of Rhesus macaques in our beloved city.
Rajasthan being a desert state, you can bump into a camel while strolling in the pink streets of Jaipur. Indeed those animals are really important in Jaipurites' daily lives. The Raikas are the tribe that breed and keep them, they take pride in their jobs and have a special connection with their animals. In the state capital they're used for various shores, mostly for the transport of heavy goods in carts. Nowadays camels in Rajasthan are endangered and in order to save them the state government passed the Rajasthan Camel Bill in march 2015, punishing camels slaughters and making them state animals.
