Caption: Rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta), with one grooming the other. Social grooming in monkeys involves removing dead skin, debris and insects from the skin and fur. This monkey is also called the rhesus macaque. It is found throughout Afghanistan, northern India and southern China. It is gregarious, occurring in large groups ranging from 20 to 180 individuals. It feeds on leaves, pine needles, roots and occasionally insects. Photographed at the Galwar Bagh ('monkey temple') at the Ramgopalji complex, part of the Hindu pilgrimage site at Galtaji, near Jaipur, India.
