Monkeys are mammals of the order Primates. They arose from ancestors that lived in the trees of tropical forests. Many monkey species are still tree-dwelling, although some species live primarily on the ground. Monkeys are generally considered to be intelligent.
Besides, monkeys are notoriously curious. A recent research at the University of Rochester and Columbia University has quantified just how eager they are to gain new information, even if this means, they wouldn’t get immediate benefits. The study shows that rhesus macaques have such robust curiosity that they are willing to give up a surprisingly large portion of a potential prize in order to quickly find out if they selected the winning option at a gambling game. Therefore, the findings offer insights into how a certain part of the brain shared by monkeys and humans plays a role in decision making, and perhaps even in some disorders and addictions in humans.

Lions live in the plains and grassy hills, never in the mountains and surely not in the high snow mountains. They are geographically distributed in mostly sub-Saharan east and southern Africa, but can also be found in many zoos internationally as well as in India and some parts of Asia.
These cats once ranged across the African continent and into Syria, Israel, Iraq, Pakistan, Iran, and even northwest India. 2,000 years ago more than a million lions roamed the Earth. In the past few decades, however, the population of these vulnerable animals has dramatically decreased. Now they may total as few as 20,000 animals.
