Barbary macaque, magot (Macaca sylvanus)

COMMON MACAQUE. This picture illustrates in a striking manner the impudence that is so strong a characterist
Macaques as of many other species of Monkeys. The Crocodiles shown in the stream are the most feared of all the enemies of the Monkey
tribes. But the mischievous troop in the trees know that they are beyond the reach of the reptiles, and they are having some fun with them —
the oldest and boldest males just out of reach, tne others at safer distance, but all evidently deriding their aquatic enemies with chattering glee.
The Common Macaques are natives of Java, Sumatra, Borneo, Celebes and Batchian. They are great thieves, going out in large parties for the
purpose of robbing fields of grain. They have very large shoulders and are clumsy animals. (Macacus cynomolgus.)
