I really pity this sad fellow- he is a Rhesus Macaque

The juvenile monkeys create quite a racket playing and jumping about in their cage at certain times of the day. It's the adults that look really sad. This poor Rhesus monkey clutches at the thick mesh on his cage as he stares blankly at some of the kids playing inside his rather cramped and crowded enclosure. A real sad state of affairs. I thought the zoo concept had changed radically wordwide, yet, it was sad to see this old concept of stuffing creatures into small cages very much in use in this relatively modern zoo.
