NATURE Clever Monkeys

Who are the cleverest monkeys? And how much of human experience do they really share? NATURE features our closest counsins. Sunday, November 9th 7:00 pm, KUAT6.

Tai, sooty mangabey
Tai, a sooty mangabey in the African rainforest, is one of the troop of multilingual monkeys, eight species who all understand each other's calls.

Crime, passion, love, language and the understanding of life and death are feelings humans know well. What we didn’t know is that all these intricate experiences are shared with our cousins — the monkeys. Through the cultivation of knowledge and the knack to adapt to a variety of environments, monkeys have formed sophisticated societies much like our own.

NATURE Clever Monkeys travels several continents exploring various monkey species while capturing remarkable behaviors that many viewers likely have never seen before.
