Meet the Scientist: Dagmawit Getahun
Gelada monkeys, also known as the "bleeding heart" monkeys because of the bright red patches of skin on their chest, are found only in the highlands of Ethiopia. They are the world's only grass eating monkeys and spend most of their time on the ground rather than in the trees. While their range is currently very restricted, fossils show us that their ancestors lived all over the world. Join Dagmawit "Dag" Getahun, a biological anthropology PhD candidate at the Graduate Center, CUNY, for an exploration of the evolutionary history of monkeys from Africa and Asia and how the study of these terrestrial primates might lead to insights about our own evolution.
