Photo: Macaca Radiata Picture

A Macaca radiata lingering in the tree at the Auckland Zoo on the North Island of New Zealand gave us the perfect opportunity to capture its picture.

Amongst the lush greenery in the habitat of the Macaca radiata or Bonnet Macaque at the Auckland Zoo on the North Island of New Zealand, we get a perfect opportunity to take his picture. Many of these types of Old World monkeys are kept in captivity in zoos, but if in the wild, they reside in India amongst the evergreen and wet deciduous forests as well as urban areas.

A usual number for a group of Macaca Radiata to travel together consists of approximately 30 to 40 in the wild but are totally dominated by the biggest male. These monkeys can live to be approximately thirty years old but over the years their natural environment is becoming destroyed by humans.

People that hunt the Macaca Radiata are after them for food, illegal medicines or to sell them in the pet trading business. None of these reasons are good enough and if people do not think what they are doing to these unique mammals, they will soon be extinct in the wild. ... continue below the picture...

At the Auckland Zoo on the North Island of New Zealand, you can take a picture of the Macaca Radiata if there are within range. They have been known to be very uncooperative at the Auckland Zoo as they like to tear apart the vegetation in their habitats. Recently steps have been taken to ensure that the right mix of plants works with the Macaca Radiata and capturing their picture while visiting the Auckland Zoo has become a fair bit easier.
