Barbary macaque




Barbary macaque at Korkeasaari,

These monkeys live in the Atlas Mountains
in Algeria and Morocco and a small
population of unknown origin in Gibraltar.

  17. Thanks for your kind comment, Gunilla. Do you have Christmas markets in the region where you live as well? Or do they disguise the Barbary macace in Finland as a kind of Santa Claus!?!?!? ;-)
    Have a great and pleasant Christmas festival and a happy New Year!
    Uwe.

    1. Thank you Uwe! We have a lot of Christmas markets here, but I've never seen a monkey there. Everyone knows that Santa lives in Lappland. :-)
      Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you as well!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
