About Macaques

Macaques are a well-known species of primarily Old World monkeys. They are found as far North as Japan, but mainly are throughout hot temperate zones of Asia and Africa. The Barbary Macaque is diurnal and found mainly in Morroco and Algeria and has only a stub of a tail, which is vestigial. It is a hardy animal and lives in matriarchal groups of 10 to 30 individuals, feeding on fruits, roots, and leaves. It weighs up to 30 lbs., its front legs slightly longer than its rear legs and moves on all fours. It is both arboreal and terrestial.
