Bachelor geladas huddle chest to chest to conserve heat in the windy December dawn. The monkey at right barks a warning as a family male—one with his own group of females and their offspring—approaches to show who's boss. Often the single guys ask for trouble by eyeing nearby females, "kind of like rough street kids," says biologist and gelada expert Chadden Hunter. "They're old enough to know what they want but not big enough to take it."
