Worlds collide. As their habitat is lost to human encroachment, southern pig-taled macaques are increasingly coming into conflict over crops. They view rainstorms as opportunity to raid crops, knowing farmers will likely be inside. Troops designate one individual to stand guard and give the alarm if people do appear. Their home ranges are large, and the macaques seldom stay in one place for long; as they move through the trees, they keep in touch with low vocalizations. But the world as they know it is in grave danger due to habitat loss, hunting and capture.
