30,000 Monkeys Are Wreaking Havoc on India's Capital

Creatively speaking, humankind has put a lot of energy into speculating what could happen when chimps take over the world (there have been — what? — a billion Planet of the Apes movies made by now?), but, as it turns out, it isn't the non-human apes that we should be focusing on, but their rat-faced monkey brethren.… » 7/22/14 4:15pm 7/22/14 4:15pm

Ikea Monkey's Name Is Darwin, He's Now Living Happily at a Sanctuary

This past Sunday, a seven-month-old rhesus macaque, wearing a solitary Ugg boot as a jacket, was found wandering an Ikea parking lot in Toronto.

Stupid Dude Monkeys Collude to Keep Lady Monkeys Out of Leadership…

Even when, according to a certain cinematic barometer, monkeys supplant people as the world champions of frontal-lobe evolution, you can almost certainly bet that they'll stubbornly insist on maintaining a prehensile grip on the patriarchy. New research shows that male primates whose fathers are strong leaders can… » 7/12/12 12:30pm 7/12/12 12:30pm

Sunday Shiver: Isn’t Anyone Worried About How Smart Monkeys Are?

Dude, monkeys are smart. Is anyone keeping a really close eye on them? We make fun of them all the time and dress them up in funny outfits, but it's not funny — they have hands. Cats don't take shit from anyone and this monkey is making this cat look like a big stupidface. Any animal that can make cats look dumb is… » 4/15/12 6:45pm 4/15/12 6:45pm

'Fat Monkey' Sculpture Is Made From 10,000 Pairs Of Flip Flops

This monkey statue is different, though, because he isn't made from bronze, stone, or even plaster of paris — he's made from 10,000 pairs of flip flops. The… » 10/12/11 5:25pm 10/12/11 5:25pm
