Animal Planet

In central India, Langer monkeys and spotted deer share their sensory systems, working together to provide safety in this cool clip. 

Animal Planet has amazed us once again with this clip of the symbiotic relationship between Langer monkeys and spotted deer. This relationship supplies each with safety from predators, such as the Bengal tiger.


Relationships in the Animal Kingdom are complex, intricate puzzles that click together in precise ways to ensure there is a mutual satisfaction gained.

In the case of these monkeys and deer, they work to not only guarantee each other’s survival, but also utilize each other as a food source, as shown in Animal Planet’s “Fooled by Nature.”

They are often found cohabitation together, albeit the monkeys are high in the trees and the deer are low on the ground. However, where one group is often seen in central India, the other is surely around.
