If there were 7 copycats on a fence and 1 jumped off, how many would be left?

Marmosets are only 12" big and usually feed on tree sap. But sometimes they will swim out into mid-ocean looking for oceanic white-tip sharks. They only eat the fins though:

:O Close airship but wrong monkey. There is a monkey/babboon in Southern Africa which wanders out to the exposed rocks at low tide and gathers sharks eggs from the exposed kelp.

No Twotts, you might be thinking of the Digitallis Nogottus, a now extinct Tasmanian monkey. ;)

This is one of the few reasons
I tolerate the glass box
in the corner.
(Is it a screen with scientists
monitoring my reactions
to visual stimuli?)
I am watching sweet-faced monkeys
on a beach in Africa
tease through seaweed on rocks
as though looking
for car keys or money.
They find shark eggs
and split and peel them,
scrape their lower incisors
from edge to edge,
occasionally a sac of blood
will out as they quickly work,
to remind us,
this frenetic, carnivorous spree
is monkey eating shark.
On another channel,
down another estuary,
soldiers, champing at the bit,
eat oranges.
Their lower incisors
scrape the skin of flesh
and pith,
and thanks to censorship,
there is no little face seen,
just the back of the head,
its kiss curls
wet and pressed
like dried seaweed,
monkeys sleeping in trees,
crabs climbing to eat leaves.
We all come from Africa.
