This book introduces the social behavior of Tibetan monkeys (Tibetan macaques) at Mt. Huangshan in China. Like other macaques, they live in multiple female and male groups with female philopatry and male dispersal. Unlike most of other macaques, however, male Tibetan monkeys carry an infant to another male, hold up the infant, and suck the infant’s penis together. In agonistic interactions, females form a coalition with unrelated females as well as with their mother and daughters. The author shows what kind of intelligence these monkeys have.
