“Did monkey business shape human society?”



In the jungles of Sulawesi, an Indonesian island, primatologist Maura Tyrrell crouches to study the behavior of a crested black macaque, an endangered Old World monkey species. Tyrrell believes the monkeys — highly intelligent, playful and engaging — can shed light on the evolution of early human social structures.


They can probably shed more light on the evolution of modern social structures!!!
