Welcome to the community inaralisa!
I have cropped the image for you this time as this is your first spotting here. As Daniele has suggested, please take a few moments to read or FAQs as they provide guidance on what can be shared as a spotting on Project Noah. I have also removed "Monkeys from Gibraltar" from the scientific name box, as this is for the unique latin name that is used to identify every species wherever they are in the world, & ticked the "help me ID" box. You should update this in edit by unticking the box & adding the correct scientific name Daniele has kindly provided the correct for you. Thanks!

Hi inaralisa, and welcome to Project Noah! These monkeys are called Barbary macaques, and their proper scientific name is Macaca sylvanus. Project Noah asks users that humans do not feature on wildlife picture if possible, so we are kindly asking you to crop this photo so that only the macaques are visible. Thank you in advance! You can find out more about the type of images suitable on this site on our FAQ page.
