Monkey business.

This is of course a macaque. I was fortunate to come across them playing in some water the other day....jumping in with a big splash. the juveniles and subadults having a great time. Even swimming.

This I had never seen before....some of them actually swam under water.....

These constitute a genus (Macaca) of Old World monkeys of the subfamily Cercopithecinae. The 23 species of macaques are widespread over the Old World, especially Asia.

These Macaques are highly adaptable to different habitats and climates and can tolerate a wide fluctuation of temperatures and live in varying landscape settings. They easily adapt to humans and can survive well in urban settings if they are able to steal food. They can also survive in completely natural settings with no humans present.
