Asked in Cheetahs, Monkeys

Do monkeys kill leopards and cheetahs?

User Avatar
No, not usually. Monkeys and baboons make up a substantial part of leopards' prey in certain areas. There has been recorded cases of a troop of baboons injuring or even killing a leopard, but this is very rare and will be virtually impossible for a monkey. However, monkeys, being closely related to apes, are far more intelligent than leopards and cheetahs. A monkey can easily pick a sharp stick or rock and use it to defend themselves or other monkeys. A lone monkey would rather run than risk its life fighting a predator. But a group of monkeys working as a team could injure a predator, forcing it to give up, or, in very uncommon cases, kill the predator. Animals with seemingly no biological/physical defenses use intelligence to defeat a predator. A group of dolphins can confuse a shark by circling around it, forcing the shark to either flee or faint. Dolphins can also ram sharks with their hard noses. The same applies to humans, we have no natural biological or physical defenses against predators except our intelligence. So, to answer your question, monkeys do have the intelligence to bring down a predator. But it's more common for them to force the predator to give up than actually kill it.

Can monkeys make fire?

User Avatar
If you give a monkey a lighter then, yes. However, if you are talking about a natural fire I think there would only be a 2% chance. Formation of the thumb has been instrumental in the evolution of man, which finger can be held against the other four fingers, facilitating a firm grip on things. The emergence of this thumb and it's positioning against the other fingers in the opposite direction helped man in making fires and forging weapons which in it's turn were used to make more and new weapons, initiating civilization. Monkeys do not have a thumb, so they cannot make a fire. If monkeys had thumbs they would not only have made fires but sitting on trees and making sticks out of twigs, they would certainly have beaten men walking under also.

How is the gibbous moon and gibbous monkey alike?

User Avatar
That's a misspelling; gibbous is a phase of the moon (more than half but not full), and Gibbons are a species of ape.
Asked in Chimpanzees, Monkeys, Bigfoot Yeti and Sasquatch

Is a Yeti a type of monkey?

User Avatar
First answer According to DNA evidence Yeti, Bigfoot, Sasquatch, ect are genetically between humans and chimps. Humans and chimps share %99 of the same DNA so Yetis and relatives are closer to us than even chimps. I think of them as the 'missing link'. I think it's only a matter of time before a body if found. Second answer There has never been any type of study on Yeti DNA published in a peer-reviewed journal, so the first answer is extremely unreliable in that regard. Chimps and bonobos are still our closest living relatives. But if the Yeti was a real creature, it would be some type of an ape. Apes and monkeys are distinguishable by their anatomy and lifestyle. Apes are tailless, have robust skeletons, and spend much of their time on the ground, while monkeys have prehensile tails, weaker skeletons, and spend much of their time in trees. Yeti are often describe as large bipedal apes. Despite this, the snow macaques of Japan serve as a good example of how a primate would be able to survive in such a cold climate.

How much do baby pygmy marmosets cost in NY?

User Avatar
Marmoset really means, marmo - turkey and set - whacker, so what a marmoset is is really somewhat of a so called "tur-key-wak-er" They are extremely hybrid in nature but once you get to know them, theyre really friendly and excruciating. so to answer your question, Id probably say give or take probably somewhere around the vicinity of anywhere between ten hundred to thirty hundred dollars, now that is a rough estimate. I have one myself and he ate my tv, theyre really hungry when it comes to everything you own, ive also heard of them crawling into brains and causing their owners to enrage themselves in a schizophrenic stupor, mines been missing for 3 days.
