If you visit Batu Cave with your kids, you should stay away from them or watch them from far, not too close! These monkeys at Batu Caves can attack them since they are very territorial!  Don’t feed them unless you would like to be attacked… 🙁

You will see these Macaque monkeys eating flowers! Actually, I found it very funny since the long name of these monkeys is called Crab-eating Macaque, but they were eating flowers instead! They are not as threatening as number 1 type of Macaque. You can relax when you meet these flower-eating monkeys at Batu Caves! 🙂

3. Chilled monkeys at Batu Caves

These monkeys at Batu Caves are my favorite ones. They are just into their own world and they don’t seem too much care about people. They are just very chilled. These chilled monkeys changed my stereotype of monkeys which tend to be too playful or too hostile.
