Photographer's Note

A baby Lion-tailed Macaque, a specie origin in India's south-western Ghats mountains & forests .
Taken while visiting the Ramat-Gan Safari zoo. One thing noticed, that it would never look directly to human eyes, see what it says on the article here:

Head-to-tail length of 45 to 60 cm and a weight of 3 to 10 kg, it is one of the smaller macaques . It is a good climber and spends most of its life in the upper branches. Unlike other macaques, it avoids humans.
The lion-tailed macaque is one if the rarest primates. Many zoos take part in breeding programs to help this species survive. 368 of these Macaque are reported to live in zoos.

I know many would not like zoo's photohraphy, but its the only way for many to see animals from other parts of the world. In many cases those animals are saved.
