Macaques are a group of monkeys which sleep and find refuge up in the trees but they also spend a lot of time foraging on the ground for a wide variety of fallen fruits and small animals. They are true omnivores meaning they eat animal and vegetable food. These Sulawesi Crested Macaques are an endangered species being helped by many zoos including Thrigby.
