Incredible moment monkey helps another monkey birth her baby

Scientists have captured the incredible moment monkeys help their fellow monkey birth her baby. The moment which was captured by researchers after decades of observation, show the Chinese primates serving as midwives to their companion as she brings the newborn baby into the world.

The baby was birthed in daytime, a rare occurrence, as monkeys typically give birth at night, as the cover of darkness leaves them less vulnerable. See more beautiful photos of the wild golden snub-nosed monkey birth process;
