Long-tailed Macaque Monkey

Macaca fascicularis


This monkey was very large, and it was dangerous and aggressive so we didn't get the chance to get close and measure it. It was approximately three feet tall, and one foot wide. The entire underside of its body was whitish-grayish, while the backside was completely light and dark brown. The tips of its ears, fingers, and toes were dark black.


We found this wild monkey species when we visited a lighthouse on a high hill in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This type and another type of monkey which was completely black were roaming around, picking up food and jumping all over things (and people).
