Perceptions of the typical male primate have changed dramatically throughout the history of primatology. Early reports of relationships among group males stressed aggressive interactions and how this aggression influenced male dominance hierarchies (e.g., Hall & Devore, 1965; Kaufman, 1967; Packer, 1979). Males were described as being intolerant of one another and in constant competition for access to mates (e.g., Zuckerman, 1932). While early field studies described male–male relationships in some species as aggressively competitive (e.g., brown capuchins: Janson, 1985; rhesus macaques: Colvin, 1983; savannah baboons: Packer, 1979
