Victim of its beauty
The Celebes macaque (Macaca nigra) is a species renowned for its great photogenicity. This primate is endemic to the island of Celebes, an Indonesian island located east of Borneo (Southeast Asia). Its amber-colored eyes, its dark black coat and its hairs which stand up in the shape of a crest on the top of its skull, make the species unique.

The species is highly threatened by poaching and domestication.
