Did you know... vervet monkeys use three different sounding alarm calls to warn other members of the troupe what kind of danger might be nearby? A "snake" alarm call would cause the group to stand up and study the ground. An "eagle" alarm call would see them dive into bushes or the middle of trees where an aerial predator could not reach them. A "leopard" alarm call would send individuals scuttling up to the very tops of the trees.
