NATURE | Clever Monkeys | Baboon Hunts Baby Gazelle | PBS

Duration: 03:47

www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod... When monkeys left the forest and began living in open grasslands, they had to adapt. Baboons, for example, became more aggressive and predatory. Baboons will move around in groups of about 80 individuals for defense. Often, the larger males will go on offense as well -- chasing away predators or taking down a young gazelle.

“Clever Monkeys” premieres on PBS Sunday, November 9 at 8 p.m. (check local listings). Narrated by F. Murray Abraham, “Clever Monkeys” is part of the 27th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc., Toyota, SC Johnson, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. For more information, visit www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod...
