    Monkey Business!

    I can never walk past our crab-eating macaques without stopping to watch them for a minute or two. They are always busy! Monkeys are some of our closest cousins in the animal kingdom - just look at their hands and their expressive faces to see how similar we are!

    Like us, monkeys enjoy hanging out with their friends and family. But I've never seen people grooming each other quite like this!

    This one was determined to do a thorough job of grooming his pal! Here's a few more photos our macaques, taken the other day.

    Come and see them soon - the Wildlife Park is open every weekend all through the winter.

    Best wishes
