Macaque Infant

The Macaque is a monkey that is found in many locations including Japan and Afghanistan. There are 22 subspecies of this particular monkey found in the world. They have a type of social structure that is very complex. Feeding depends on the hierarchy so those that have social status are able to take food from the other members.

The Macaque is one of the species of monkeys that is commonly kept in captivity as pets. However, their needs for socialization aren’t going to be met and that can cause them to suffer from depression and not eat. In many areas it is illegal to keep them as pets but people continue to buy them on the black market.
