Bindi is a Macaque Monkey who came to us in April 2019 at 6 months old. She was owned illegally and was an owner surrender, meaning the family gave her to us. She was just a baby and had a lot of separation issues and didn’t want to be left alone. Stacy, the Director, became her adoptive human mom here at Animal Tracks and she took care of her just like her real mother would, she carried her around with her 24/7 for months. She was then adopted by Chrissy, our baboon. Chrissy herself, had always wanted to be a mother, so when this opportunity presented itself we jumped on it! We had to give Chrissy parenting lessons, and after a few months they started living together and have been that way ever since – although Chrissy does get a couple of hours break daily from her so she can unwind and do her own thing!



Long tailed macaques are diurnal or day dwelling. They are terrestrial, or ground dwelling. They move quadrupedally, by leaping and climbing. They are highly sociable and live in a patriarchal society of 1 male to 3 to 20 females. They are omnivores and eat fruit, leaves, insects, rodents, reptiles as well as things they can catch in coastal areas, like seaweed, crabs, shellfish, etc. They are polygamists. The females are pregnant for approximately 160 days and normally have one baby at a time. Most births occur between May and July. Males mature at the age of 6 years, females, much younger, they can have their first child at the age of 4. Grooming is the way these monkeys’ bond and show support for their friends and family. These monkeys have a superpower, they are seed dispersers, which means they eat the seeds as part of the fruit they consume, and once they defecate, those seeds are ready to become plants and trees.
