Caption: Rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta) drinking water from a tap. The tap requires a spring-loaded nozzle to be lifted in order for the water to flow. Some of the monkeys at this location had learnt to operate the tap, but others had not. 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.
