The lion-tailed macaque is a very striking animal. Their coat is shiny and black, and their face is framed with an impressive mane of grey hair. The lion-tailed macaque got its name from its long, thin naked lion-like tail with a tuft of black fur at the end.
Rockhampton Zoo is part of a Species Management Plan for lion-tailed macaques and is home for Dana, Tina and Lhasa.
