somewhat resemble a pig's tail. Pigtail macaques are found in lowland and hilly primary rainforests and occasionally are found in swamp and secondary forests. Pigtail macaques are highly frugivorous, with 74% of their diet consisting of fruit, but they also consume a wide variety of foods including insects, seeds, young leaves, leaf stems, dirt, and fungus. They are stealthy crop raiders, sneaking silently into a garden one at a time, with one acting as a lookout and calling an alarm vocalization if humans are seen. Pigtail macaques are especially likely to raid crops during rainstorms, when farmers are inside, away from their crops. In some areas of the Malay Peninsula and Thailand farmers keep and train pigtail macaques to retrieve coconuts and fruits from cultivated trees. Pigtail macaques have an average lifespan of about 26 years.
Our monkeys eat vegetables, fruit, taro, worms and various insects. They also eat rice twice a day in the morning and evening. Milk, fruit and eggs maybe a supplemental food at noon. Baby corn and banana are monkeys’ favorite foods. Over-or incorrect feeding could cause the monkeys to become fat, slow, and develop bad habits.
Naturally the monkey is one of the most clever, dynamic and knowing animals so monkey trainers should train them with patience, endeavor, sympathy, mercy and intention. Through this process the trainer and monkeys should gradually understand each other and the monkeys will follow the instructors orders.
