A female Toque Macaque and her baby share an intimate moment during the heat of the day in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka.

?????

This species of macaque is endemic to Sri Lanka meaning it is found nowhere else. Despite being the smallest species of macaque, they have one of the longest tails compared to their body size!

Toque macaque

Toque macaques are so named because of the whorl of hair on their head that resembles a type of hat. These Old World monkeys are unique to the island of Sri Lanka, where troops can be a common sight in some of the ancient temples. These troops have a strict social hierarchy. Inhabiting all types of forest, toque macaques can be as happy on the ground as they are in the trees and when foraging they stuff fruit and leaves into special cheek pouches to eat later. Although they are the smallest macaque species, their tails are one of the longest compared with body size. Did you know?Toque macaques are viewed as pests in Sri Lanka because they raid crops and rubbish dumps.
