Monkeys can imitate accent of other species to enhance communication

Monkeys will use the “accent” of another species when they enter its territory to enhance communication, much like a British person living in the US might forgo their ‘tomahto’ for ‘tomayto, researchers have found.

Researchers investigated the behaviour of 15 groups of two roughly squirrel-sized primate species in the Brazilian Amazon: pied tamarins (Saguinus bicolor) and red-handed tamarins (Saguinus midas).

The critically endangered pied tamarin – a species with a black hairless face, white shaggy fur on the neck and shoulders and an almond-hued coat from the waist down – largely live around the city of Manaus. Red-handed tamarins, which have ginger hands and feet and a body covered in black fur, are found across the north-east Amazon region.

By comparing recordings of the acoustic profile or calls of the two species in three locations – places inhabited solely by pied tamarins; by red-handed tamarins; and areas inhabited by both species – the researchers found that the red-handed tamarins adopted the calls of their neighbours in the shared region, according to the study published in the Behavioural Ecology and Sociobiology journal.

I’ve always been afraid of bigger apes. Specifically chimps, gorillas, but the worst are baboons. I still have nightmares about being attacked by troops of apes lmao :ladyhaha:
