The Tibetan Macaque (Macaca thibetana), also known as Milne-Edwards' Macaque, is found in China, Tibet and Vietnam. This species lives in subtropical forests (mixed deciduous to evergreen) at altitude that range from 800 to 2000 meters. The Tibetan Macaque has a long dense brown fur with whiskers but a hairless face. The infants have silver and black fur that changes to its adult color at the age of two. Its diet consists mostly of fruit, but it will also consume seeds, leaves, berries and flowers as well as invertebrates. It is a gregarious animal and lives in multi-male and multi-female groups. The life span of the Tibetan Macaque is over 20 years.

There are four recognized subspecies of this macaque:

Macaca thibetana thibetana
Macaca thibetana esau
Macaca thibetana guiahouensis
Macaca thibetana huangshanensis
