Incredible midwife monkey

Postby Ice.Maiden » 18 Jan 2015, 21:00

For the first time, a female monkey helping another female to give birth's been documented and filmed. Usually, primates give birth alone, and other females won't touch the infant unless it's to steal it from the mother (as macaques sometimes do). It seems incredible that these animals can react in such a human-like way.

I think most animals are. Not many kill for pleasure like man does.
