This video is amusing.


I do not agree with the evolutionary theories of Frans de Waal, but the behavior exhibited by the monkeys is very similar to human beings who are not entirely self-examined.

The monkeys seem to have a concept of fairness, or more specifically, some internal sense that tells them they are not getting what is owed to them if life were fair. Sound like any people you know?

Looked more like he was upset that he wasn't getting what the other monkey was getting. He didn't want the white one he wanted the purple one. But that was cute. Especially him a throwing his fit.
Poor things shouldn't be locked up.

Maybe Im just too soft but I didnt see anything funny, all I saw was an animal thats too smart to spend its life locked in a cage which is most likely the fate of these monkeys.

I know its not vivisection and they probably have plenty of mental stimulation but seeing caged animals, especially ones caged in such clinical environments just makes me sad
