Photographer's Note

All across Barbados you will find these mischevious little creatures including in the gullies that run across the island and even in peoples gardens.
The green monkeys found in Barbados originally came from Senegal and the Gambia in West Africa approximately 350 years ago. About 75 generations have occurred since these monkeys arrived in Barbados and, as a result of environmental differences and evolution, the Barbados monkeys today have different characteristics than those in West Africa.

This is one of green monkeys mothers I have come across in the Barbados Wildlife Reserve.
