What’s the only thing more exciting than seeing animals in the wild? Baby animals in the wild! Check out these photos of baby monkeys – baby long-tailed macaques:
Baby monkeys – Long-tailed macaques
Most common monkey in Asia
Long-tailed macaques are the most commonly seen type of monkey in southeast Asia. I saw them all over Asia, from Indonesia to Cambodia to the Philippines.
Male members leave the group when they reach puberty, according to Wikipedia. Long-tailed macaques are also called crab-eating macaques.
They are opportunistic omnivores and have been documented using tools to obtain food, according to the American Journal of Primatology.
These baby monkeys are so adorable. It’s easy to forget that they’re wild animals. Be careful out there!
Most of these photos are from seeing these baby long-tailed Macaques in Bako National Park, in Malaysian Borneo.
Tips for photographing wildlife
I find these little infant monkeys to be so adorable! If you come across baby wildlife in the wild, be aware of your surroundings. Mothers do not take kindly to anyone else in between them and their child!

These baby monkeys in Borneo were cute. Here’s my favorite baby animals that I’ve seen wild so far.
- See baby elephants (from Malaysian Borneo),
- Baby apes (baby orangutans).
- And tarsiers, which are not babies but they’re the smallest primate on earth
