Macaque fascicularis

We’ve been waiting impatiently for this little female to grace the shop, and today she arrived. She’s fresh in from Indonesia and as you may have guessed, she’s a crab eating macaque aka Macaque fascicularis.

One interesting fact about this monkey is that despite its name, it doesn’t eat crabs. Rather it’s an opportunistic omnivore with a high percentage of its diet consisting of nuts and fruits. She’s also part of a wide-ranging species covering much of southeast Asia.

We’re happy to welcome her into the shop and hope you can come see her in person at the shop.
