And the winner for best hairstyle is...

For this week's @qurator's Photo Friday Competition, back to one of my favourite photo themes: wildlife! And in what concerns fabulous hair, these guys steal the show. I think I've talked about this species before, but can't resist to share a few more photos. The toque macaque, Macaca sinica, is a primate endemic to Sri Lanka, where this photo was taken.

I only found them in the upper part of the country; this photo was taken near Sigiriya, where this young monkey stood near the stairs to one of the temples, doing some tourist-watching. The fact that they are so used to human presence gives us good opportunities to close-up photos.

I just love how cool their hair is!! And I think they are proud of it too! Here they are, during a grooming session:

I think this kind of hair is unique in the Macaca genus... but if you know about other primates with hair like this, do share the information; would love to know about them!
