All About Animals :: Monkeys

Do you need some ideas for a school science project? What about animals? Kidzworld is starting a new segment called “All About Animals” and we will be exploring the nature of a particular animal or species every week. This week why don’t we start with everyone’s favorite animal… the monkey!

Monkey Mischief

Evolution of MonkeysEvolution of Monkeys

Monkeys are one of the funniest animals in nature. They are full of curiosity and adventure, mischief and intelligence. A monkey would make a great science project because there are many different species that you could explore, and also, you could study how monkeys evolved into human beings.

Fun Features

Monkey See!Monkey See!

Although most monkeys look the same with their long arms and human-like faces, there are over 250 breeds of this species. Let’s take a look at some of their similar characteristics.

  • Monkeys live in the jungle (mostly tropical rain forests)
  • Monkeys love to eat fruits (like BANANAS), but monkeys eat will anything that smells good... and bad
  • Monkeys are sneaky, and in cities like Bangkok, they will steal food from street vendors, stores and unsuspecting tourists
  • Monkeys have feelings just like humans (Love, Fear, Compassion, Hate)
  • Monkeys nurse and help each other when wounded
  • They hold hands and groom with affection
  • Small monkeys can be kept as pets and trained as they are highly intelligent
  • Larger monkeys are strong, quick, and have claws that can kill

The funniest feature about a monkey is that they enjoy to be BAD! Look at this video of a monkey terrorizing a tiger just for the fun of it. It’s like an extreme sport for them called “Tiger Tail Pulling”.


Side Stories

Monkey Steal!Monkey Steal!

When hunting for food, monkeys work in groups. There is always a leader who gathers food while others stand guard. Monkeys speak a language for alerting danger. They have a word for each dangerous predator:

  • Snake!
  • Tiger!
  • Danger!
  • Ehh… No Danger.

That Little Liar!

Monkeys have been discovered to lie amongst each other. While hunting for food, the leader sometimes finds a treat like an egg. If he wants that egg for himself without sharing with the others, he will yell “TIGER!”. And while his group of hunters retreat into the trees, he has lots of time to kick back and eat the egg all for himself.

there is a problem in being gay because in the bible God created a man and a woman which are opposite sex now if u destroy that ### isnt it wrong its like creating something and then someone else who is under ur authority comes and changes it and uses it in a negative or wrong way what u would have felt is how God feels when u commit that sin and if u look at it it has alot of negative effects

The forums is really a... special place. There's the roleplayers, the people who you can find ONLY in the debate or the politics/religion section, and the people who post on anything and everything  (regardless of their knowledge of the subject).
