    The Barbary Macaque depend mainly on mankind for their survival at the Rock. From to , these tailless monkeys of brownish gray coats were cared for by the British army and afterwards by the Gibraltar Regiment, who were in charge of controlling the population, keeping the monkeys in good health and providing fruits, vegetables, nuts and. The Barbary macaque (Macaca sylvanus), Barbary ape, or magot is a species of macaque unique for its distribution outside Asia and for its vestigial tail. Found in the Atlas Mountains of Algeria and Morocco along with a small population that were introduced from Morocco to Gibraltar, the Barbary macaque is one of the best-known Old World monkey species.

    Barbary macaques are covered in thick fur that presumably helps protect them from cold temperatures. Body color ranges from yellowish-gray to darker grayish-brown. Their chests and stomachs are much lighter than the rest of their bodies while their faces are often dark pink. Barbary macaques have noticeably short tails, ranging from 1 to 2 cm long.

The book is, in my opinion, very lacking in information with regards to the ways in which Barbary Macaques live 'in the wild' other than, say, their social/mating behaviours and interactions with humans in Gibraltar, for example, and making comments with regards to habitat loss significantly caused by/via humans that, quite frankly most interested readers would be aware of anyway or could surmise 3/5(1).

The principal aim The Barbary Macaque book this book is to present a synthesis of current knowledge of the biology of the Barbary macaque, and in doing so to recognise the contribution the Barbary has made to our understanding of primate socio-biology.

Barbary macaques live in a temperate climate and are use to hot and dry summers and cold, snowy winters. This is why at ‘La Montagne des Singes’ they can live outside all year-round. They are well adapted to this type of climate, protected against the cold by long, thick fur during the winter and they moult in the spring.
