It's fun to watch the monkeys do their usual day-to-day activities, which often include lots of play, and there's really nothing better than watching monkeys do their thing. One monkey deftly juggles a Brazil nut, and we learn that all monkeys enjoy treats; India's bonnet macaques get to enjoy jackfruits In winter, while snow monkeys must adapt their diets to eat less appealing foods like pine needles and twigs. Some of the monkeys are a little scary looking, which makes this doc best for slightly older primate fans.
