- Trunks used as a nose with strong sense of smell and also to pick up food
- Modified teeth (tusks) to help tear tree bark
- Larger ears are sensitive to soft sounds and help it keep itself cool during hot summers
- The long tailed macaque has adaptations that help it survive almost entirely on trees.
