Pecking order

In Sri Lanka, toque macaque society is run by a ruthless class system. Those born into high-ranking families have a massive head-start in life. If a highborn female wants something from a low-ranking female she can take it, literally taking food from her mouth. If the subordinate refuses to co-operate, she risks being beaten by the rest of the troop.
