The Barbary Apes

Apes were probably introduced by the Moors in the early 13th century from the Mountains of Morocco.

They live in packs on the upper Rock of Gibraltar and are the only remaining free roaming primates in Europe.

A macaque has no tail at all, and although referred to as an ape, is actually a monkey. Each macaque can live for

at least 20 years. Visitors happily mingle with them in their habitat, but it is illegal to feed them.
