These Barbary Macaques are the same animals that run amok in Gibraltar. The main difference between those aggressive little buggers and the cuties that inhabit Monkey Forest, is that the latter are fed by the keepers in a controlled fashion and aren’t fed by the visitors.
This appears to completely remove the handbag snatching antics of their rock-inhabiting cousins, which makes for a much friendlier and relaxing experience.
Having said that, the cheeky little monkey below didn’t appear to like having his photo taken that much
Our timing turned out to be impeccable however, as we came across this tiny infant who was only 5 days old. Very cute
