Ever had your pet beg to you for food? Well this is no different. This is Emma, performing her signature “hands out” behavior to indicate that she would like you to share whatever scrumptious things you have with her. Emma is a long tailed macaque that lives in a tourist park outside of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She is one of the subjects in my dissertation study, which investigates how monkeys adapt to urban areas.
