Fourteen categories of male-infant social behavior were recorded during the early infancy of seven stumptail macaques living with four adult males in two colony groups. Momentary touching of infants by males occurred earlier and more often than behaviors such as clinging and grooming, which are usually associated with maternal attachment. Differences among infants in the amount of paternal attention received, and among males in the amount given, were explained in terms of the affiliation patterns of adult group members.
