According to the senior programs officer for the National Geographic Society, it's true that monkeys are distant biological relatives, but it's unlikely they see us as such.
Humans often approach monkeys in this region bearing food. The types of old world monkeys tend to be very social. They live in matriarchies of roughly 15 individuals, and their troops often have a large number of juveniles. It's common for individuals in the group to express empathy to one another..
"If you spend enough time with them, it feels like you're part of a group," said the senior officer, but she added that, just like humans, primates are shaped by environmental factors and individual personalities. Primates that live in regions where poaching is common might be more hostile to human presence than those that are used to being fed.
