    Yes! Add monkeys of trees, apes (gorillas, chimpanzees, etc) and tapirs on the ground, and river dolphins in the rivers. :)

    Monkeys should be added I would be soo much fun if they also taunt you and copy you what ever you do and also jump from one tree to another

    Bananas should be added along with the monkeys and the bananas should have growing stages. First small and green then fading into yellow with a bit of green then bright yellow then with a little bit of brown on them banana trees should be populated with monkeys around them hanging from the trees eating bananas and being playful.

    In potential Jungle Villages it would be fun to watch Monkeys steal stuff from the villagers.

    It would be very interesting, for the game and for the community, to see animals that not only walk on the ground but also in the jungles in the trees would be great, also give some life to the nature of the trees, and not only that otherwise I would add more sounds and joy to both the game and the player.

    It would be very impressive to see gorillas, orangutans, monkeys, in the jungle.

    Maybe the apes could be cheeky and if they add jungle villages they could go and steal stuff from chests so if you kill a monkey it has a rare chance of dropping something rare and useful

    If they are big enough maybe they could hold onto you soldiers and rest on your back like a backpack and add extra inventory

    I would like that there are monkeys in minecraft and that players can tame it and bring you things and put bananas to tame it

    I LOVE the idea of making jungles feel more alive! Maybe even some small bug types that would swarm if you get too close taking a half a heart of damage every 7 seconds of them swarming you kind of like mosquitos the only way to get them off would be to jump in the water but there is a sense of danger in the waters because of caimans. A sloth some colorful slugs and Poison Dart frogs would also be great additions to the Jungle (I also think more normal forests deserts and things like that need a lot more life...desperately)

    • Good idea. 
    • I think that the monkeys can attack like pigmen. 
    • The apes should be in colonies.

    I'd love chimps aswell even though they are apes. They could spawn in groups and fight other groups of chimps.

    Maybe add a monkey totem. This would give you the ability to climb trees and one block wide or less things and you would get a little more speed. Also monkeys should steal gems and fruits from chests or players.

    Hmm. This reminds me of the movie Congo, based on a book by Michael Crichton. The apes mostly kill people. Monkeys are aggressive. You need to be careful around them.

    No MONKEYing around this one, the idea of having some kind of primate would be very cool and yea even with the addition of Panda's the jungle still feel's very empty and having monkey's running around the jungle floor and even jumping from treetops would be cool to see....plus Banana's we do know that Monkey's love banana's

    Monkeys should be shy mobs but they would have a desire to randomly steam one item from you if you approach them too much.

    I think if they add monkeys, they should definitely add banana "trees" too. If you tame a monkey with a banana, it can ride on your shoulder, and if you give it a map while it's doing so, it will fill out your map for you as you walk. This would leave your offhand free while exploring. Perhaps monkeys could also open and close doors

    I think players should be able to tame them but won't follow the player like a panda. I also think there should be 3 different sizes of them. Large, Medium, and Small (Baby Sized). I also think baby monkeys should be able to ride the adult monkeys and be able to stack up to 3 at a time. Just like baby Piglins riding on baby Hoglins. Next, I think baby monkeys should be able to roll and do a handstand. At last, I propose that monkeys should be able to hang from trees with there feet and be able to climb and swing from tree to tree.
