I’ve always loved monkeys. As a kid when I visited the zoo I wanted to head straight for the monkeys. I adore their antics and chatter. While in Malaysia we saw macaques everywhere. Each time the guide would say, “Oh, more macaques, let’s move on.” It reminded me when I was in Botswana and the guide would say, “Oh, more impalas, let’s move on.” Just for the record, I was thrilled to see impalas. They are beautiful creatures. But back to the macaques. I did my best to snap photos of these characters whenever I could.
Here they are at the Batu Caves:
Are you seeing double?
Along the Kinabatangan River
On the grounds of our lodge
Now I should note that these monkeys can be quite sneaky. Don’t leave anything outside or they will steal it. Our guide kept referring to them as bandits. I kinda like that about them.
