Social behaviour in the male primate

The alpha male

«The status of the alpha male is generally achieved by means of superior physical prowess.

However, in certain highly social species a contender can use more indirect methods, such as political alliances, to oust the ruling alpha and take his place.»


«They misunderestimated me»


«The major civilizing force in the world is not religion, it is sex»


«Silverbacks are the strong, dominant troop leaders. Each typically leads a troop of 5 to 30 individuals and is the center of the troop's attention, making all the decisions, mediating conflicts, determining the movements of the group, leading the others to feeding sites and taking responsibility for the safety and well-being of the troop.»


«Males will slowly begin to leave their original troop when they are young, traveling alone or with a group of other males before being able to attract females to form a new group and start breeding.»

«Males will only stay in their natal group if they are likely to be able to mate with females.»


«We piss anywhere, man..»

Territorial behaviour

«Never go against the family»


«The males of a community regularly patrol their boundaries, and if they encounter individuals of a neighboring community they may attack with extreme brutality.»
