Silver Springs is one of the few places in Florida that Rhesus Macaque monkeys live wild along the shore line. These monkeys were introduced by a concessioner to highlight his very popular jungle cruise back in the mid 1930’s. They were put on a Island named Cypress Island, and the concessioner was going to call it monkey Island. What he did not know is the monkeys were excellent swimmers, and quickly swam away. They can now be seen throughout the park, and the Ocklawaha river basin.
