Rock’s mischievous Macaques multiply

Cheeky monkey e

Cheeky-monkeyTHEY may be cute, the may look fun, but be warned… Gibraltar’s latest arrivals are a mischievous bunch.

Up to 30 Barbary Macaque infants have been born in the last month alone, keeping the Upper Rock’s environmental security guards on their toes.

Harmlessly play-fighting with one another and catching a ride on the backs of their elders the infants are said to be ‘largely harmless’.

But as one environmental officer told the Olive Press this week, ‘it is the little ones you have to watch out for’.

“They are young and have no boundaries,” he said. “Hopefully their inquisitiveness shouldn’t cause a problem.”
