Experts suggest that a female rhesus macaque might have a greater chance of finding a mating partner when her butt is swollen and red. Celebes Crested Macaques Laidre, M. E. (2011). "Meaningful gesture in monkeys? Investigating whether mandrills create social culture". PLOS ONE. 6 (2): e14610. Bibcode: 2011PLoSO...614610L. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0014610. PMC 3032724. PMID 21311591. Adult males move between troops throughout their lifetime. Males live with a troop, instead of forming bachelor troops. However, they are regularly usurped by new arrivals or simply move on, believing the grass is greener on the other side (which isn’t necessarily so 🙂 ). Inter and intra-troop relationshipsThey use vervet monkeys to test the things they don’t want to test on people. Vervet monkeys as pets The last one lives in semi-arid habitats, tropical rainforests, and hills along the red sea (the hamadryas/sacred baboons). Both male and female Rhesus macaques have red behinds and red coloration on their face and genitalia.

Bhanoo, Sindya N (September 13, 2012). "A New Kind of Monkey, With Colors That Set It Apart". The New York Times . Retrieved 5 November 2012. Like many primates, vervet monkeys are actually omnivorous. They supplement all their greens with eggs, insects, baby birds and the odd rodent. Size and weight A baboon’s butt tissue is arranged somewhat like the illustration above so that blue photons are reflected and all of the other photons (like the red ones) are absorbed. Only the blue light makes it out and gets into our eyes. This is why we see we see blue monkey butts! After birth a baby clings to its mother most of the time. However, the baby is shown off to other females and the rest of the troop enjoys a turn grooming and caring for the newborn. You can think of a photon as a drunk person walking through a forest. The drunk person enters the forest and walks into a tree, D’oh!, changes direction (scatters) and walks another short distance and into another tree, D’oh! D’oh! D’oh! D’oh! …. and before you know it the drunk person exits the forest in a random place going a random direction.

The only solution is to accept that we have invaded their habitat, so the least we can do is be proactive in finding ways to coexist in harmony with wildlife.
