Stump Tailed Macaque

There are 10 stump-tailed macaques (Macca arctoides) at Monkey World,  who came from two different British laboratories.  The first group we rescued in 2000 had been kept in small individual indoor cages and were used in asthma research.  The second group came to the park in 2010 and while they had never been outdoors in their lives they lived in small social groups at the lab whilst being used in reproductive studies.  The stump-tails now enjoy their natural outdoor enclosures and the companionship of their own kind.
