"Free and Wild" Barbary Apes Tip by keeweechic

Barbary Apes, Gibraltar: 56 reviews and 97 photos

The Barbary Apes or (Macaques) are a tailless species and in Gibraltar, are today the only free living primate in Europe. Tourists can get quite close to them up at the Apes Den. You will see then wandering around, sitting on the fence or hanging off the mirrors of the tour buses.

The apes are looked after by the government and are fed by the army. They are apparently all registered and even given names to keep track of the birth and death rate.
