The Kid Should See This

The communal support within Crested Black Macaque monkey troops

Watch more with these video collections:

Crested Black Macaques endure torrential rains on the northern end of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. It’s the only forest on Earth where they can be found. BBC Earth visits this Lands of the Monsoon locale to observe how these monkeys are similar to humans, engaging in social activities and communications that bond them within their large troops.

“Lip-smacking is a request for a hug, showing a desire to be friends. Blowing kisses and sharing cuddles is not only reserved for close family, anyone in the troop can join in. They are amongst the most affectionate monkeys on the planet… The monkeys’ character is the result of the riches the monsoon brings. Life with abundant food.”

Next: The Funkiest Monkeys, Zen Snow Monkeys (Japanese macaques) in Japan’s hot springs, the World’s Only Grass-Eating Monkeys, and how Emperor Penguins keep warm in an ever-shifting huddle.

Plus, more videos about death and more community videos, including an Amish Barn Raising, The Event of a Thread, and Bus Station Sonata.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
