How many monkey species are there?

When do monkeys start breeding?

Monkeys typically begin their reproduction process at around 4-5 years of age. Females are attracted to the biggest and strongest males. The big and strong male monkeys are typically the leaders of the group and are the only ones that will breed within the group.

Why do monkeys groom each other?

Moms groom their babies and monkeys groom each other. Check out these fascinating monkey grooming facts:Grooming not only removes external parasites, it leads to tolerance, social support, mating advantage and bonding between individuals within a social group.

Grooming reduces tension by lowering the heart rate and releasing endorphins that are calming. It is used to reinforce male-female mate bonds as well as same sex friendship bonds. (source:

No, it’s not a joke but sure does sound like it! A group of a tribe of monkeys is called a tribe, troop or mission.
