Monkey's string words together

I have a strong suspicion that my Shih Tzus communicate like this too.

Will have to get down on my all fours and investigate.

Scientists identified two call types "pyows" and "hacks"

which the monkeys use to alert each other to danger

1. a string of pyows warned of a loitering leopard

2. a burst of hacks indicated a hovering eagle

3. several pyows, followed by a few hacks, told the group to move to safer ground

4. The pyow-hack sequence means something like 'let's go'

5. pyows by themselves have multiple functions

6. hacks are generally used as alarm calls.
