|Booted macaque range|
The booted macaque (Macaca ochreata) is a macaque of the Sulawesi Island, Indonesia. This Old World monkey is diurnal and spends most of the day in the trees. It is 50–59 cm long plus a tail of 35–40 cm.
Two subspecies are recognized:
- M. o. ochreata
- Muna-Buton macaque, M. o. brunnescens
Outside of their native Indonesia, booted macaques are found only at the Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo in Thurmont, Maryland. A family of booted macaques has resided there since the 1960s, and they are already into their fourth generation in captivity.
