A day at the Zoo(Walid Monkys)

One of the favorite animals at the National Zoo on New Malaysia is the Northern Walid Monkey. They Are Diurnal and arboreal by nature. They eat fruit nuts and small insects. They live in troops headed by a male with 3 to 5 Adult females and their offspring. They are famous for having eyes that can move independently of each other.

The Troop leader kicks out his sons when they reach maturity. The female offspring stay with the troop but it should be noted unlike many animals Walid Monkeys do not mate with their offspring. They gained their name from the famous exo-bilogist Muhammed ibn Hamza who noted their peculiar mating habits.
A bachelor Walid Monkey will approach a troop carrying fruits and nuts or build a pile in the path of a troop. While the head male is eating from the pile the bachelor then steals one of the mature female offspring of the head male. Biologists believe the monkeys can smell whither or not a female has ever been pregnant, and this is why they don’t try to grab one of the head male’s mates.
