About Barbary Macaque
The Barbary Macaque (ma-kack) is the only species of primate that lives in Europe. Tens of thousands of years ago, Barbary macaques were found throughout southwestern Europe. Today, they are only found in Gibralter. There are rules in place to protect them. A newborn Barbary macaque will hold onto its mother’s belly for transportation. When it gets a little older, it will ride on her back.
