08 Nov Watch the Hilarious Monkey Fairness Experiment
This is a funny and interesting video of a science experiment demonstrating how two female monkeys react when treated unfairly. “Only female capuchins were tested because they most closely monitor equity, or fair treatment, among their peers,” said Sarah Brosnan, lead author of the study. Looks like unfair treatment is disliked in any species! This can be interesting information for parents in the human species, who have all observed the unpleasant reaction between siblings when one thinks the other is getting a better deal.
