[USA], Sep 1 (ANI): Asian Colobine
monkeys are unable to taste natural sugars, and in fact have a generally poor sense of taste as the receptors on their tongues do not function in the same way as for fruit-eating monkeys, found biologists.
The estimated age and geographic location of the species suggest that the Simuilus minutus was likely in competition with colobine
monkeys for food resources.

monkeys at Dutch Zoos.
6), even though not described in detail, was attributed to this colobine
species by Delson (1973, 1974; also Szalay and Delson, 1979; Perez and Soria, 1990; Moya Sola et al, 1990).

monkeys: function and opportunism in evolution.
Instead of eating fruits and insects as most monkey species do, colobine
monkeys in Asia and Africa have a diet more like cows'.

A comparison of the floristics and leaf chemistry of the tree flora in two Malaysian rain forests and the influence of leaf chemistry on populations of colobine

pallidum infection is possible in some of the investigated species (colobines
), it is likely that infection is not yet present because of behavioral and ecologic constraints between the infected and noninfected species.
Aside from the discovery of numts in humans and many other species, Karanth (2008) have definitively illustrated the presence numts in primates, specifically colobines
