There’s No Other Place In South Carolina Quite As Odd As This Island That’s Home To 4,000 Monkeys

Few people in South Carolina know there’s a sea island approximately 10 miles from beautiful downtown Beaufort that was once an active research laboratory. Today, however, the property is just merely the home of the island’s former research subjects: an entire colony of free-range Rhesus monkeys that’s now grown to approximately 4,000 strong.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

But did you know there’s also a free-ranging colony of wild Rhesus monkeys found along the coast here too?
