Langur monkeys grieve over fake monkey – Spy in the Wild: Episode 1 Preview – BBC One
The BBC’s new “Spy in the Wild” documentary series is based on introducing animatronic creatures equipped with spy cameras into animal communities to explore animal behavior and emotions up close. A preview for the first episode shows how the idea went from fascinating to heart-wrenching in mere moments among a group of Langur monkeys in India.
The spy camera is hidden in the eye of a very realistic-looking baby Langur. Even its face moves. The other monkeys seem to accept it as a member of the group, but one monkey gets a little too curious and ends up accidentally dropping the “baby.” It lays motionless on the ground and the group goes into full-on grieving mode for what they think is a dead young one.
