Primate Fact of the Day #18 - Howler monkeys, a New World species native to Central and South America, are so named because their deep, guttural call can reach up to 90 decibels, which is almost as loud as a lawn mower. They would make a great Death Metal band. Compare...

Those Howler monkeys sound waaaaay better than the metal band.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

I replaced it with a more fitting video. No comparison needed.

Primate Fact of the Day #19: Orangutans have the longest period of maternal dependence of any ape, and possibly longer than any mammal in the world. Babies nurse until they around six years of age. Males and females stay with their mother for some years after weaning, and the latter may not have their own children until they are in their teens (some as late as eighteen).

35 to 45, and because they must care for their children for so long, they may only have 4 to 5 children during the course of their life.

Apparently the Bornean orangutan can live as long as 45 years. So say Wikipedia so grain of salt.

RE: Primate Fact of the Day
Coming up with an explanatory illustration for such a concept was quit difficult. The best scenario that I could think of was a high school reunion where people use name tags to remember who everyone is. This explains why there is a name tag on the butt of "Frank". Gombe is the jungle reserve where Jane Goodall did most of her research. This entire composition may be a little too creative to be funny as it probably requires too much thinking. ...

Interesting, because obviously they read facial expressions also.

Instead of shaking hands as a form of greeting bonobos fuck each other. "Hey George, how you been?" "About the same. Driver or passenger today?"

Primate Fact of the Day #21: Suriya the Orangutan and Cooper the Chimpanzee are the only known apes to display the ability to swim and dive under water. This is human-induced behavior, however. Wild and captive apes have a natural hydrophobia, which may be an adaptive response to losing the instinctual ability to swim due to living in or near trees.
