Juvenile Coats: François’ langur (T. francoisi) infants have a very distinctive pelt from their parents. François’ leaf monkeys aren’t the only primates (or animals) whose offspring have these distinctive juvenile (and natal!) coats. Different species of colobus monkeys, spider monkeys, and gibbons among others show these changes, while gorilla and chimp juveniles have juvenile specific features that distinguish them from adults (gorilla juveniles have white tuft of fur on their butts while chimp juveniles have a lighter face). On an ultimate perspective, why might this had evolved? What environmental factors may had driven these adaptations? On a proximate level, what are the cost and benefits of this adaptation? Does it affect social dynamics? Parent/offspring relationships?
