Southern Pig-tailed Macaque


The Southern Pig-tailed Macaque (Macaca nemestrina) is a medium-sized macaque that lives in southern Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. It is mainly terrestrial, but also a skilled climber. Unlike almost all primates, these macaques love water. They live in large groups that split into smaller groups during the daytime when they are foraging. They are omnivorous, feeding mainly on fruits, seeds, berries, cereals, fungi, and invertebrates.
