Crab-eating macaque

Macaca fascicularis


When they want something nobody can stop them :D when i took the second picture he took my camera casing and not give it back :D we where running around and finnaly i give him some food and he dropt it :D they are a little bit aggresive.


They live in a wide variety of forest habitats, thriving best at the edges of forests. They spend some of their time up in the trees and some of their time on the ground. Unlike some types of monkey, they do not seem to mind sharing their habitat with humans; this is an important factor in the survival of the species.


In Indonesia, M. fascicularis and other macaque species are known generically as kera, possibly because of the high-pitched alarm calls they give when in danger ("krra! krra!").
