Long-tailed macaques frequently live near or around rivers, oceans shorelines and mangrove swamps. They often jump into the water to escape predators such as pythons, raptors or large cats. Their swimming ability also gives them a “leg up” on accessing food – they dive to catch underwater prey like crabs and frogs, or paddle across rivers to get to fruit on the other side.
Graham is almost three times the size of most of our macaques and is the dominant male of the group.
Graham has more of a laid back personality and is very food motivated. He really enjoys peanuts, jello, and worms!
Mango has a shorter tail and slightly larger body size.
Mango is one of our dominant females and you can often find her in the middle of a grooming session!
As our youngest male macaque, Paul is smaller in size. His darker face also helps him to stand out.
Paul loves food and is often seen stuffing his little cheek pouches with raisins and other treats!
Ren is our youngest and smallest female macaque.
Ren still spends a lot of her time under mom Momba's watchful eye, but loves swimming and diving in the water.
