Caption: Toque macaques. A male and female toque macaque (Macaca sinica) showing affection. These Old World monkeys are endemic to Sri Lanka where they live in troops which have a social status that is highly structured. Small troops can have as few as 10 individuals whereas large troops can number up to 40 individuals. IUCN listed toque macaque as vulnerable due to habitat destruction and hunting. These primates, which often live close to human settlements due to loss of habitat, have a tendency to raid crops and steal food from vendors and human residences. Photographed in Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka.
