Monkey Picking Bananas

C Fi 9942

Bands of feral macaque moneys are roaming Central Florida. Scientists estimate there are nearly 200 primates in Silver Springs State Park alone. Another 72 have been spotted from Franklin County in the Panhandle down to Sarasota County. The monkeys, who live in groups, or troops, usually avoid people, but they can become aggressive if they feel their turf is threatened.
