The people of Tafi Atome have a unique way of treating their monkeys. The monkeys are deeply revered by these people because of the traditional significance that is attached to the monkeys. In fact, these people hold funeral rites for dead monkeys before finally burying them in a cemetery that was built for the sole purpose of keeping dead monkeys. Now, the monkeys are so free with the people so much that they eat from the hands of the people. The Mona monkey is the most prominent monkey species here.
