Barbary macaque

Macaca sylvanus


A baby macaque watches on nervously, as its mother charges towards a newly arrived cable car at the summit of Gibraltar. On this occasion a tourist on board failed to read the numerous signs and brought a plastic bag full of food, which was promptly snatched from her by the mother macaque. The monkey's craftiness was rewarded with some homemade cake found in the bag. Meanwhile this baby was left forgotten while the mother had high tea, seemingly oblivious to its panicked calls and even more hysterical screams from the tourist.
