Bonnet macaque (Macaca radiata) with fruit stored in its cheek pouches. When troops forage in an area with an abundance of fruit, individuals often store fruit in their cheek pouches, especially if they are concerned that they might be chased away from the food source. This monkey is so named because of the bonnet-shaped patch of hair on its head. It reaches a body length of between 35 and 60 centimetres. It eats ripe fruits, leaves and insects, and lives in groups in evergreen and deciduous forests. Photographed in Periyar National Park, Kerala, southern India.
