Abstract

The breech birth of an infant mantled howling monkey was observed on February 12, 1990. The mother assisted the successful delivery by pulling on the infant's tail and hindleg. No other members of the social group attended the mother or demonstrated any interest in the birth process. Copyright © 1991 Wiley‐Liss, Inc., A Wiley Company
