Todd the spider monkey is about to embark on a five-month island vacation in landlocked Greenwood, Missouri. Drivers will glimpse Todd climbing trees or scaling a 6-foot statue of a tyrannosaurus rex or swinging on the 64 feet of monkey bars that stretch the length of the island. Savorelli has to transport Todd to the island, which is accessible only by boat.
If one ever decides that it doesn't like you, let it go man--the street organ is gone. Enormous-Schwanstucker : FTMFA: "In a bid to curb the monkey problem the city 'employed' larger, more ferocious langur monkeys to go after the smaller groups of Rhesus macaques.

The scandal over exhaust experiments on monkeys shows just how unscrupulous Volkswagen, BMW and Daimler are when it comes to manipulating the public. Anything goes when it comes to diverting attention from the dangers inherent in diesel. When auto industry executives come together to party, the smell of exhaust fumes is far from disagreeable.

Their furry little coats and hoods looked so snug around their faces, while their scarily human-like fingers and toes had me contemplating the incredible mysteries of both creation and evolution. Suddenly, there was a hideous screeching sound and I turned to see an adult monkey suddenly plunge onto the back of another, claws digging into his back.
As I have promised, here is short a video of Amari and Lori, the two macaques we rescued from Angkor. Both have made a remarkable recovery and are in good health, as you can see. We need to keep Amari in a small cage during the time we are unable to give her direct supervision, because she is blind.
J ust as in pissed-off human societies, agitated animal communities sometimes erupt into violent revolutions that establish new social regimes. In monkeys, these upheavals usually start as a series of small skirmishes — and occasionally the violence escalates into an all-out brawl.
