Lion-tailed Macaque

Lion-tailed Macaque

The hair of the lion-tailed macaque is black. Its outstanding characteristic is the silver-white mane which surrounds the head from the cheeks down to its chin, which gives this monkey its German name Bartaffe - "beard ape". The hairless face is black in color.

This one is seen at the Jackson, MS Zoo.
