Abstract

Computerized weight records are available for about 1,500 mother-reared pigtail macaques (Macaca nemestrina) born at the Primate Field Station located at Medical Lake, Washington. In addition, weights are available on over 150 hand-reared monkeys who were separated from their mothers at birth and housed in the Infant Primate Research Laboratory nursery. This data bank is a major source of normative growth information. It also may play an important role in general health care practices with infant and older animals.
