I guess, being part monkey, myself, is why this fascinating wildlife-documentary appealed to me so much.

Professionally produced through the BBC, as part of their "Earth" series - "Monkey Warriors" takes the viewer to the streets of Jodphur, India where literal troops of extremely bold and aggressive Hanuman langur monkeys live, hunt, mate and do bloody battle with each other on a daily basis.

Agilely jumping from building to building, and cunningly navigating their way through Jodphur's narrow, citizen-crowded streets - These fiercely territorial creatures have grown into vicious, rival gangs where winner takes all.

Be sure to watch this DVD's bonus feature where the cheeky and dauntless vervet monkeys of South Africa invade the middle-class suburbs of Durban, much to the chagrin and frustration of its irate citizens.
