A Bonnet Macaque offspring,

Wide, globular eyes that was absorbing everything on its range. A hand adept at holding small things, a caring mother. Few of the impressions this little creature made on me. After all, evolution is real.

Though, this species is of least concern, there is alarm on few ecological challenges, These creatures are known to raid farms and villages, also they are creeping into urban centers, rather urban sprawling has left them homeless. Also,  the land use changes in last few decades has resulted in changes in its distribution boundaries with the rhesus macaque, raising concern for its status in the wild
