As seen at the outstanding Internet web site isegoria.net and as reported during a time of conflict between TROOPS of monkeys, that male or displaying the greatest amount of courage and bravery receiving the attention of the females to the EXCLUSION of the shirker.
"Female monkeys use wile to rally troops"
"Female vervet monkeys manipulate males into fighting battles by lavishing attention on brave soldiers while giving noncombatants the cold shoulder"
"After a skirmish with a rival gang, usually over food, females would groom males that had fought hardest, while snapping at those that abstained."
"When the next battle came along, both those singled out for attention and those aggressively shunned would participate more vigorously in combat, according to a study published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society"
I MAKE NO FURTHER COMMENT BUT LEAVE THE DEVOTED FOLLOWER OF THE BLOG TO PERUSE AT THEIR LEISURE AND MAKE THEIR OWN ESTIMATIONS. AS WITH MONKEYS SO WITH HUMANS? GIVE THAT MAN [MONKEY] THE MEDAL OF HONOR.
