About this photo
Teten (b. 2012, Indonesia) was rescued in 2012 during a patrol at Lake Tondano in North Sulawesi, where he was chained up and kept as a pet. He was transferred to the rescue centre Tasikoki, in the area of Bitung. That is where he stayed over the past eight years and where a new group was formed. This summer the group of 11 animals was successfully released in the forests in the Gunung Ambang Natural Reserve.
Species: Crested black macaque (Macaca nigra)
