Description

The Barbary Macaque (Macaca sylvanus) is a medium sized primate native to northern Africa. They are distinguishable by their light brown heads and even lighter bodies, and their lack of a visible tail. The barbary macaque is the only macaque not native to Asia. Before the Ice Age, they were found in most of Europe, and barbary macaque remains from 200 BC have even been found in Northern Ireland. There is also a population of barbary macaques living in Gibraltar. They are descendants of the north African population, and are thought to have been brought to Gibraltar by the Moors between 711 and 1492.
