Pig-tailed macaques live in hierarchical female-bonded groups. Although commonly practiced in SE Asia, feeding the monkeys creates dangerous dependency on humans and upset the natural balance of their lifestyle. These monkeys are known in Thailand to steal people's belongings to trade for food. #pigtailedmacaque #macaque #monkey #jungle #donotfeedthemonkeys #crabeatingmacaque #wildlifeofthailand

Peekaboo

The lockdown has resulted in a major decline of tourists. This has affected the long tailed or crab eating macaques who visit the phra prang yot temple since they are dependent on offerings . A massive gang of temple monkeys took to the streets in search of food. This led to a 10 minute traffic halting brawl between them and the local monkeys over a piece of food. April and May are marked as severe draught periods that force the monkeys to travel from forests to nearby towns. Their natural habitat is thinning due to urban expansion and coastal erosion. #illustration #illustrationartist #animalsaroundtheworld #animalsoflockdown #longtailedmacaque #monkeys #primates #crabeatingmacaque #temple #brawl #foodshortage #bangkok #thailand #tourism #quicksketch #dailydrawing #decline #hungryanimals #aggression #art #digitaldrawing #procreate #ipad #womenwhodraw #artistsofinstagram #artistsofindia

Had the opportunity to get some fresh shots of a new troop today. Jackfruits in season so monkey parents are having a feast while the kids begin to explore! #longtailedmacaque #crabeatingmacaque #macaque #primate #monkey #sgwildlife #sgbiodiversity #wildlifephotography #naturephotography

Picking your friends: Long-Tailed Macaques at the Bayon Temple in Cambodia. In this picture, a Macaque is grooming another which is an act of reciprocal altruism. Macaques have a very intricate social structure and hierarchy. They have developed a reputation for actively stealing items from humans (cameras, eyeglasses, hats, etc.), then refusing to return their stolen goods until given food in return. We saw Macaques at several temples we visited in Cambodia and made sure we held on to our possessions! #bayontemple #macaque #groominglife #longtailedmacaque #crabeatingmacaque #holdontoyourhats #monkeysofinstagram

Malaysia is FULL of abundant life in it's vast rain forests. Here in the jungles of Johor at the height of rainy season, Macaques are giving birth to their young. I don't think these are the best looking babies but, they are a type of ugly precious I suppose😜 I believe they are the only animal that I have seen where the babies look older than the mom. I guess they grow into their facial skin or something.... What do you think ugly, cute, OH MY!?!? #commentbelow #johorbahru #Jungle #Macaque #Monkey #crabeatingmacaque #baby #animal #babyanimal #mom

CRAB-EATING MACAQUE Macaca fascicularis

#MammalMonday Long tailed macaques are sometimes called crab-eating macaques but despite their name crabs are not a large part of their diet. They are opportunistic omnivores, eating a variety of animals and plants. Native to South East Asia they can be found in a wide range of habitats - from primary forest to mangroves to the outskirts of towns and villages where they are often viewed as rowdy pests. There are also a handful of countries where the long tailed macaque has been involuntarily introduced and threatens endemic endangered plants and animals because of this they have been added to the list of “100 of the World’s Worst Invasive Alien Species”. #meaningfuladventures #stickyricetravel #borneo #sabah #sabahtourism #exploresabah #naturephotography #longtailedmacaque #crabeatingmacaque #macaque #live_love_wildlife #wildtropics #natureseekers #thephotosociety #natureaddict #wildernessnation #mammalsofinstagram #wildlifephoto #earthfocus #wildlifeplanet #animals_captures #animal_fanatics #animalelite #protectbiodiversity #monkeysofborneo

(Content warning: Monkey PDA 💁🏻‍♂️) ⠀ Monkey couples doing the things monkey couples do. Which mostly means grooming one another. But also making and raising baby monkeys. ⠀ (I say “couple”, but it’s worth acknowledging that macaques are generally polygamous, so these likely aren’t monogamous couples.) ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #Bali #BaliIndonesia #PesonaBali #BaliLife #WisataBali #BaliWildlife #Ubud #UbudBali #PesonaUbud #WisataUbud #IndonesiaWildlifePhotography #WildlifePhotography #Monkey #Macaque #MonkeyMonday #LongTailMacaque #CrabEatingMacaque #Wildlife #MonkeyCouple #MonkeyFamily #MonkeyLove #Monyet #MonyetBali ⠀ 3:30

This female Long-tailed macaque ( known as crab eating macaque) spotted in Singapore foraging along a reservoir for snails. They are fascinating omnivores creatures native to south east asia and known to wash their food before eat, tool usage such as stones to open nuts, oysters & snails, etc. They are well adapted to co-exist with the humans, mostly non aggressive except provoked. Their habitats in Singapore are limited to the nature reserves in Singapore with around 1500 in their population. #Longtailedmacaque #crabeatingmacaque #crabeatingmacaques #singapore #singapore🇸🇬 #singaporereservoir #reservoir #southasia #singaporenature #singaporenaturereserve #monkey #primates

International Macaque Week. When it comes to humans, while we probably don’t fancy grooming every person we’ve fallen out with 🤭, it’s clear that when it comes to arguments, peacemaking is the preferred option for many primates. Primates like the Macaques have a whole arsenal of strategies up their sleeves (or should i say cheek pouches) to forestall, or mitigate the costs of relationships. Inter species interactions rely heavily on tolerance level. Primates in particular are conspicuous beings of many ecological communities in the tropics. No species in the natural world occurs in isolation. These interactions forms integral members of an ecological community. Here is a good display of primate mutualism between a Long-tailed Macaque and a Dusky Langur. Grooming helps to ease that parasite load. These adaptive behaviour of inter-species interactions usually results in both parties gaining benefits. But just like how not every human relationships begin/end well - it’s the same for these primates! #interspeciesinteractions #longtailedmacaque #crabeatingmacaque #Duskyleafmonkey #Duskylangur #Internationalmacaqueweek #Symbiosis #Primates #Primatesofinstragram #Monkey #Wildlifephotography #Naturephotography

With all of the photos of monkeys I post, you might think that Bali is crawling with them. And, I’m sure, you can find plenty deep in the jungle. Yet, nearly all of my photos are from Ubud’s Mandala Suci Wenara Wana (“Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary”) and its immediate vicinity. ⠀ Given this, you may be curious what keeps them in the sanctuary, given that it isn’t fenced off. The answer, of course, is all of the free food they get. In this way, I think we can all relate to these monkeys. ⠀ Here’s a set of long-tailed macaques enjoying some of their complementary food. Most of it was given to them by the people who work there. But some of it was ganked off of visitors. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #Bali #BaliIndonesia #PesonaBali #BaliLife #WisataBali #BaliWildlife #Ubud #UbudBali #PesonaUbud #WisataUbud #IndonesiaWildlifePhotography #WildlifePhotography #Monkey #Macaque #MonkeyMonday #LongTailMacaque #CrabEatingMacaque #Wildlife #AdorableMonkey #Monyet #MonyetBali ⠀ 12:30

And because it’s Mother’s Day, i wanna re-share my favourite footage of adorable Annette and her baby taken in 2013. #longtailedmacaque #crabeatingmacaque #macacafascicularisfascicularis #macacafascicularis #macaque #primate #internationalmacaqueweek #mothersday #sgwildlife #sgbiodiversity

International Macaque Week. Sixth Macaque is of course the one that is close to home and heart - the Long-tailed Macaque. Hailed as one of the most successful primate species in Southeast Asia, there are at least 10 subspecies of the macaca fascicularis family. They vary in colour from light brown to grayish brown with a crest of hair on top of their head. Males have mustaches and cheek whiskers while females have beards as well as cheek whiskers. Named after their distinguishing long tail that is longer than their height, they are also called the Crab-eating Macaque. Listed as Least Concern in the IUCN Red List, the relationship between people and them has taken diverse directions for the longest time. Habitat loss and direct/indirect feeding has subjected them to persecution when that healthy fear towards humans turned to high dependency. They are also harvested for the biomedical research industry. Here in Singapore, the Long-tailed Macaque Working Group adopts a long term integrated & continual approach in mitigating this long term issue between people and macaques. #longtailedmacaque #crabeatingmacaque #macacafascicularisfascicularis #macacafascicularis #macaque #primate #internationalmacaqueweek #wildlifephotography #naturephotography

Jackfruit Visited Thomson Nature Park multiple times, and have seen various local fruit trees, like Durian, Rambutan and Jackfruit in this former Hainan village. These fruits are enjoyed by the Long Tailed Macaques #长尾猕猴 residing there. I had posted photos of the macaques feeding on Durian in that park a while back. In Dec 2019, the same day I photographed the Little Spiderhunter and the Wragler's Viper in last 2 postings, I saw a pair of juvenile Macaques feeding on a fallen #jackfruit #菠萝蜜. Nothing in nature got wasted. #longtailedmacaque #crabeatingmacaque #macaque #splendid_animals #singaporewildlife #sgwildlife #wildsingapore #sgbiodiversity #nparkbuzz #nparksbuzz #sgpy_biodivercity #sgparks #sgnature #nparks #wildlife #wildlifephotography

Tourists chillin’ with long-tailed macaques at Ubud’s Mandala Suci Wenara Wana—or, as it’s better known to visitors, the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary. ⠀ If you click through on the location, you’ll see hundreds of photos of people getting up close and personal with the monkeys. Personally, I try to maintain a healthy respect for nature. While these monkeys are well-acclimated to humans, a small misunderstanding could end in a big mess. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #Bali #BaliIndonesia #PesonaBali #BaliLife #WisataBali #BaliWildlife #Ubud #UbudBali #PesonaUbud #WisataUbud #IndonesiaWildlifePhotography #WildlifePhotography #Monkey #Macaque #MonkeyMonday #LongTailMacaque #CrabEatingMacaque #Wildlife #Monyet #MonyetBali ⠀ 14:00

You came to the wrong neighbourhood, motherf*cker (was originally drawn after being chased by one of those. Monkeys are little badasses). #art #illustration #characterdesign #monkey #monkeysofinstagram #macaca #macaque #crabeatingmacaque #culpeosfox #culpeo #culpeofox
