If monkeys told fairy tales, the antagonist in their version of "Little Red Riding Hood" might be a margay instead of a big bad wolf. According to the Wildlife Conservation Society , new research shows how these rare, little understood felines use psychological trickery to lure in their dinner. The behavior was first witnessed back in 2005 when Wildlife Conservation Society researchers were following a group of pied tamarins — tiny monkeys the size of squirrels — through the Amazon rain forest. While the monkeys were feeding, both the tamarins and the researchers suddenly became alerted to what sounded like baby tamarin distress calls. That's when surprised researchers saw what was hidden from the adult tamarins: a hungry margay lurking in the branches.
