A Macaque from the Atlas Mountains in North Africa, with a small population on Gibraltar. They are the only other primates to be found freely in Europe. They form troops of 10 to 100, which are matriarchal.
I uploaded this before, but it got messed up my end (couldn't see any of the pictures). These macaques were everywhere on the Rock of Gibraltar. They were quite bold, I saw a baby trying to sneak into the souvenir shop anytime someone opened the door. Looking into their eyes was strange, so human-like.
