Affen in Thailand

Von wegen wasserscheu !

The crab-eating macaque is the most common monkey in the world. It is quite invasive in Thailand and throughout South-East Asia. This monkey is a cheeky pest: it gets everywhere to loot garbage without any shame. But, do you really know it? Did you know it could swim, dive and see underwater? Did you know it falls for shellfish and oysters? Did you see it using tools like great apes do? The macaque does not only joke and play. In packs, it can kill to assert his power.
