Barbary Macaque on Rock of Gibraltar in Gibraltar

This adorable face is a Barbary macaque, one of about 600 wild monkeys living on the east side of the Rock of Gibraltar. Experts cannot agree on how or when they arrived from Morocco. Yet the population is growing and so are the numbers of tourists who visit them each year. The best place to see them is at Apes’ Den. Some people call them apes (which they are not). The locals call them monos (meaning monkeys). You will call them adorable as they pose for your selfie or group photo.
