There are 23 species of macaques are distributed throughout Asia and
North Africa. Macaques are principally frugivoroux,
although their diet also includes seeds, leaves, flowers, and tree bark, and some,
such as the crab-eating macaque, subsist on a diet of invertebrates and occasionally small vertebrates.
Macaques are found in a variety of habitats throughout the Asian continent, and are extremely adaptable.
All macaque social groups are arranged around dominant, matriarchal females.
They also have learned to live with humans,
and have become an invasive species in some human inhabited landscapes,
such as the island of Mauritius and Silver Springs State Park in Florida
