Jazir the Toque Avoids Tension in the Troop

Jazir, the toque macaque, is now one year old. Camerawoman Sue Gibson notices him moving away from his mother and feeding by himself. He is also learning to use his bigger size to out-muscle his smaller, lower ranking peers. Other frustrated infants must wait their turn, but Jazir needs to be careful as frustration can build into tension, and boil over into fights that leave macaques injured.
