    1. Wow, that is quite a complement! :) Especially from you... thank you! :) I particularly love the placement of the hands and feet... that is what initially interested me about the little guy, and to me, makes it interesting. It is what I think i look like when i was reprimanded as a kid! :) Posted 5 years ago

The Rhesus macaque , also called the Rhesus monkey, is one of the best-known species of Old World monkeys. It is listed as Least Concern in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and its tolerance of a broad range of habitats. Native to South, Central and Southeast Asia, troops of ''Macaca mulatta'' inhabit a great variety of habitats from grasslands to arid and forested areas, but also close to human settlements.
