The Moor macaque (Macaca maura), is a species of macaque with brown/black body fur with a pale rump patch and pink bare skin on the rump. It is about 50-58.5 cm long, and eats figs, bamboo seeds, buds, sprouts, invertebrates and cereals in tropical rainforests. It is sometimes called "dog-ape" because of its dog-like muzzle, although it is no more closely related to apes than any other Old World monkey is. It is endemic to the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia.
The moor macaque is endangered mostly due to habitat loss from an expanding human population and deforestation to increase agricultural land area. Only 1000 moor macaques are estimated to be left in Sulawesi. Because several Sulawesi macaque species are endangered, information on ecology and behaviour is essential and conservation management plans are being designed.
