Abstract:Non-human primate species normally gives birth to neonate during night or at twilight to prevent predation from diurnal natural enemies. This increases the difficulty of researchers to collect the information on how the primate mothers reproduce, handle the neonates, umbilical cord and afterbirth. In this report, we described 2 cases, including placentophagia-relating to afterbirth consumption by animals- and mother macaque discarding the afterbirth from the free-ranging group of Taihangshan macaques (Macaca mulatta tcheliensis) in Jiyuan, Henan province, China.
