Barbary Macaque

The Barbary Macaque (Macaca sylvana) is a primate native to Gibraltar and North Africa. Although the species is commonly referred to as the "Barbary Ape", it is in fact a monkey. The Rock of Gibraltar is home to the last wild monkey population in all of Europe, where popular belief holds that as long as Barbary Macaques exist on Gibraltar, the territory will remain under British rule.
