    Today I gather the Monkey Village and Baboon/Mandrill diets. Philip double check them and we were missing the training grapes so we had to wait until someone grabbed them for us. The meeting was short with very little that was new. The only thing that was new was information about the spider monkey, Debbie. It appears that she is having some issues with food and the medical staff wanted the buffer to service them in the afternoon. Philip got me started on cleaning the exhibits while he prepared the diets. It was the same routine as yesterday but he wanted me to also check the lick sticks and the hot wire. I was going through everything when I had forgotten to check the lick sticks, so as I was placing out their food I also checked the…

    but I am against having these insecure, violent alpha males run our society. To understand why, let’s look at one more primate: baboons. In Robert Sapolsky’s book, A Primate’s Memoir: A Neuroscientist’s Unconventional Life Among the Baboons, it describes a typical alpha male dominated society (lots of stress, specifically high levels of glucocorticoids, and violence for everyone, even, eventually, for the alpha male). But something very odd happened to the troop he was observing. Some poachers…

    2.) In consideration of the relationship between the Intermembral index and the habitual mode of locomotion for the six different primates, the collected data suggests that the lower the index is, the greater the chance for bipedalism as the “default,” or main movement. Versus a higher index which instead suggests the preferred ability of moving with the arms (e.g. swinging). Moreover, primates with an index closer to a total of 100 appear to assume quadrupedalism.

    Hotel Dump A man named Robert Sapolsky traveled to Kenya every year to study a particular baboon troop for his research. Sapolsky described his experience, “…suddenly they are all around you and you choke up and swim in them— who looks exactly the same, who has aged, who has a new scar, who has new pubescent muscles…. And, of course, you see who is no longer there.” One day, the wardens mentioned to Sapolsky that the baboons were “falling out of trees” due to some sort of disease at the far…

    They can relate to human stress as well as responsibilities and social structures. As for baboons in the savannah, the only ones that stress the most are the Alpha males because of the large amount of responsibilities they have to fulfill for the troop. For humans the father is the caregiver, similar to an Alpha male, in the sense that they are held responsible for taking care of their family, in majority cases. In the excerpt titled “Why Zebras don’t get Ulcers” by Robert Sapolsky, he states,…
