Wild bearded capuchin monkeys could be the second best nut crackers in the animal kingdom, suggests new research on the small primates.
A monkey that was thought to have died out more than 50 years ago has been discovered alive in the remote rain forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Male species of a West African monkey communicate using at least these six main sounds: boom-boom, krak, krak-oo, hok, hok-oo and wak-oo.
Key to the communication by the male Campbell's monkey is the suffix "oo," according to a new study, which is published in the latest issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
A pet monkey is suspected of biting 10-year-old Kylie Corwin’s ankles Wednesday afternoon in Dexter, Iowa.
“He seems nice, but when he got mad he just attacked me,” Kylie said.
A spider monkey with bones poking out of his foot, baboons with skin lesions or scarred tails, other primates with injuries thought to be caused by frostbite - those were the images that greeted federal officials during an inspection at the Wild Wilderness Drive-Through Safari last year.
But the facility, which is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, was the main force behind legislation signed into law last week that will relax the restrictions on who in Arkansas can own and breed primates.
