Rhesus macaques are native to the Old World and are a kind of monkey. They might be light gray or light brown, and their faces are often pink. Their tails are fairly long, their rib cages are broader than typical, they have dorsal scapulae, and they have thirty-two teeth. They are gregarious primates who like having fun and may sometimes be mischievous.
On the reverse side of their coats, the undertones are more muted. Their faces are smooth and, as they reach adulthood, become a brilliant shade of red; adults also have brilliantly colored rumps. They are equipped with enormous cheek pouches that allow them to store food while they are out hunting.
