Abstract:A research was made on the relationship between digit ratio (2D:4D) and social hierarchy or behavior in Macaca fascicularis. In January, 2016, 12 female adults M. fascicularis were randomly selected from Suzhou Xishan Zhongke Experimental Animals Co. Ltd., Jiangsu province for observation. The lengths of index finger and ring finger were measured with X-ray. The order of eating was observed and videotaped to determine their social hierarchy, and study the relationship between this social hierarchy and 2D:4D in the group. We found that there were significant differences in the correlation between the left hand and the right hand (2D:4D) of M. fascicularis and their social hierarchy. Female adultM. fascicularis with a lower (2D:4D) played a dominant role in their social hierarchy. And the individuals with a higher (2D:4D) were prone to depression.
