According to popular legend, Gibraltar will remain under British rule as long the Barbary Apes exist on Gibraltar.

Home to the world-famous Barbary Apes, Europe's only free-ranging primates.One of Gibraltar’s most popular tourist attractions. At present there are some 300 animals in five troupes occupying the area of the Upper Rock. Here you have the rare opportunity to observe the tail-less macaques closely.
