Peacemakers -- Stump-Tailed Macaque, Thailand
When Stump-Tailed Macaques run amok, it's not the adults who restore order. It's the infants! These bundles of cuteness can pacify even the most ferocious male! With their fuzzy white fur and rambunctious nature, they are the darlings of the troop ... for the first 6 months. As they gradually turn brown, however, the roles and responsibilities of troop membership are harshly thrust upon them. They then learn an array of shared affiliative behaviors that solidify their standing in the group.
