In the photo above, Betty is feeding a couple of the famous Gibraltar "apes" that inhabit the "Rock". Below is the "Rock of Gibraltar" and to the left is the continent of Africa between which lies the Strait of Gibraltar connecting the Atlantic Ocean with the Mediterranean Sea. History says that Gibraltar was captured by Arabs in 711 and passed to the Spanish in 1462. Great Britain took control in 1704 during the War of the Spanish Succession, although Spain has made repeated claims to regain the territory.
