Young male long-tailed macaques at play

Young male long-tailed macaques spend a lot of time playing. And long-tailed macaques of all ages seem to enjoy exploring and using human-made artefacts. In this sequence of photos by Elliot Capp two young male long-tailed macaques in Don Chao Poo forest, Phana, combine the two pleasures. You can also see  the “play face” that primates, human and non-human, employ to indicate that they are only engaged in play-fighting. CLICK on the images to see an enlargement.

I have been in and around North-East Thailand for more years than I can recall. I now live here permanently. I have travelled in 32 countries on 3 continents (Europe, Asia, Africa) so I am a bit of a traveller.
