The Wild Monkeys of Florida

Apparently, there are thriving wild communities of monkeys living in Florida.

Happy Monkday. :-D

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There’s a so-called Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay that led researchers to a population of wild macaques that has lived along the Silver River, 100 miles away, in the central part of the state, for the last eighty years.  This isn’t the only population of wild, free-roaming monkeys in Florida; another, a small troop of vervet monkeys, has lived near the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport for generations since they escaped from a roadside zoo. The vervet monkeys are often found behind a certain Motel 6, and have even adopted a raccoon into their ranks, treating it as “a long-lost family member.”
