Monkey Talk

The February 2007 issue of National Geographic has an article on the Wildlife page entitled "Monkey Talk". This article describes how putty nosed monkeys combine a number of calls to form simple sentences. The article states that:

"Now for the first time, scientists believe that they have evidence of a non-human mammal combining signals to creat entirely new meanings."

So if you run across a putty nosed monkey calling "Pyow Pyow Hack Hack", then you better watch your back, because something is up!
