Monkeys are capable of self-domestication, just like humans

Monkeys, like humans, can "tame" themselves. Domestication of animals leads not only to changes in their behavior, but also to the development of certain physical characteristics. The suppression of aggression causes the muzzles and horns to shorten, increases the flexibility of the ears, changes color, and so on. The new study published in Biology Current assumes that monkeys, like people, can participate in the process of " self-domestication" by changing the physical characteristics depending on relations with neighbors.
