Dr George McGavin has a very close encounter with some hunting Chimpanzees; in Peru, male emperor tamarins are conned into childcare; and vervet monkeys in South Africa have a sophisticated alarm system to warn for predators. But living in families isn’t always easy. In Gibraltar, Barbary macaques steal babies to impress their boss. Hamadryas baboon males in Ethiopia rule with an iron fist and in the matriarchal ring-tail lemur societies, the girls have to fight pitch battles with babies in tow.
