Toque Macaque

The toque macaque (Macaca sinica) is a reddish-brown colored Old World monkey. It is found in Sri Lanka. It lives in troops. The troops sometime number up to 20, and have developed into three subspecies.

Troops of the toque macaque are a common sight in The Cultural Triangle, where many ancient temples are situated. This has earned them the nickname of “Temple Monkey”.
