Rhesus Macaque

This is the first of a new series I'm doing here on the blog! It's sort of a drawing diary thingy, probably mostly animal nature stuff. Because you know, that's what I like.
In this first one I drew this female rhesus macaque and her skull, one of which I found in a thriftstore a while back (you can see it here). It took me forever trying to figure out what animal the skull belonged to. I did a bazillion of those little internet tests but they all said either human (no way) or primate (not specific enough). I tried to get a book on the subject but I couldn't find any thing nice. Then one day, I was just reading my RSS feed and came across a post by Elsa Billgren, and then there it was. A picture of a rhesus macaque's skull, in one of her paris posts. I'm so excited because that's one of my favorite monkeys and I just could not resist drawing one. And, here it is! Click the picture to see it bigger (better).



Thank you so much for reading my little blog and taking the time to comment! ♥
