I haven’t posted a nature video in a while, but the following video seemed cool enough to share due to the similarities shown between some sub-groups of human beings and the Vervet monkeys introduced to the Caribbean centuries ago. It is no wonder that scientists are studying their habits as a way to further study the nature of alcoholism. Unfortunately, there are some region and server restrictions for this video, so I am just posting a link this time around. You can visit the 10-minute long video here.

If you would like to know more about this fascinating species, you can do so by visiting the Vervet Monkey Foundation. The group actively works toward rehabilitating and protecting this species, and is based in South Africa.
