The Barbary Apes are the only free primates on the European continent except for humans. They are amazing animals to watch, extremely smart and very habituated to people. Turn your back for a second and they’ll be rifling through your purse for trinkets or food, and once they touch something they own it!

How about a little smoochie smooch?
