Harry Harlow Monkey Experiment

  1. This video shows how important and necessary contact and comfort is to a young animal. The monkey has two mothers. One mother is its wire mother which provides it with food. They other mother is the comfort mother which obviously provides the monkey with comfort. Even though the baby monkey needs food to survive, it will go to it's wire mother first and eat but then spend all of its time with its comfort mother rocking back and forth. This calms the baby monkey and prevents it from being scared.
