  • Monkeys can't be housebroken...at least not so far.
  • Monkeys are neither right-pawed or left-pawed. Almost all other animals show signs of a right or left preference.
  • Animal trainers report that almost all monkeys hate women.
  • Monkeys give birth at night.
  • Monkeys don't have fleas. When they groom each other, they're picking salt clusters out of each other's fur.
