He fights for the title of leader and mates with all females, even if other males do the same. In the wild, monkeys are not threatened by larger predators, but they are threatened with extinction by human activities. In general, humans are the greatest threat to monkeys. Development and hunting are the main reasons humans threaten monkeys. Tree removal disrupts the foraging behavior of monkeys. In addition, hunting or trapping as pets is allowed in some areas, which threatens their overall survival.
