Ubud Monkey Forest

.: Health concerns :.

Monkey bites are a serious medical concern considering the variety of viruses monkeys are able to transfer to humans. In addition to fleas, the monkeys at the Ubud Monkey Forest have been known to carry Herpes B and Hepatitis C. There are even rare cases of rabies being contracted from monkey bites. Rabies is prevalent in macaques and, therefore, it should be assumed there's a high likelihood of it being prevalent in the macaque population at the Ubud Monkey Forest. Prepare before travel or, if you don't, be sure to get vaccinated immediately after being bitten.

Given their apparently increasing aggressiveness, and the health risks they pose to human health, there have been calls by some Balinese politicians for a cull of crab-eating macaques in Bali. Authorities have not yet formally accepted these calls.
