Portrait of A Barbary Macaque
The Barbary Macaque, or Common macaque, is a macaque with no tail. Found in the Atlas Mountains of Algeria and Morocco with a small population, of unknown origin, in Gibraltar, the Barbary Macaque is one of the best-known Old World monkey species. Besides humans, they are the only primates that live freely in Europe. Although the species is commonly referred to as the “Barbary Ape”, the Barbary Macaque is a true monkey, not an ape.
The last wild population in Europe is that of Gibraltar, which unlike that of North Africa is thriving. At present, according to the census carried out by Andrew Stimpson, there are some 300 animals in five troops occupying the area of the Upper Rock, though occasional forays into the town may result in damages to personal property.
