Monkeys Can No Longer Have Bananas

Chimpanzee and modern banana – a bad combination?

Not even monkeys can eat any amount of modern fruit without risking health problems. An English zoo has stopped serving bananas to monkeys, as modern fruit is much sweeter and lacking in fiber – compared to the fruit that monkeys eat in nature.

The result? Monkeys eating too much unnaturally sweet bananas risk diabetes, stomach problems and bad teeth. Also they become anxious and aggressive. Like humans?

Western Daily Press: Paignton Zoo, Devon, ban monkeys from eating bananas
