Snow Monkeys Grooming at the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary

Two Snow Monkeys residing at the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary enjoy a grooming session on a windy spring day. In addition to maintaining hygiene this behavior reinforces social bonds and reduces stress. The act is just as important to the groomer as it is to the groomee and when denied the opportunity to engage in this instinctual behavior primates of all species suffer a significant reduction in quality of life.
