Barbary Macaque

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last upload. I was so pleased to receive User Awards from Don (DonMc), Lillian, Len (Len1950), Bob (bobpaige1), Kurt (Kurt42), Dave (ugly), Patty (pentaxpatty) and Fred (Fred263). Thank you so much. You totally made my day,

I know not everyone likes these animals but this one was right up against the front windscreen (as you can see from V2). He was quite a character and got really annoyed when we moved off and really stamped his feet on the bonnet. It was the one enclosure where we definitely could not open any windows - so taken through the front windscreen. Hope you like him.

Have a great evening.
