Description

The monkey mutts were created for the 75th Hunger Games. The monkeys made up one section of the arena and they attacked tributes that were in that section during the four o'clock hour every twelve hours.

The monkeys were said to be orange and look like mandrills. They also had sharp teeth and claws that popped out like "razor blades". When bitten, the bite would often look harmless but could be deep enough to cause internal bleeding.

When Katniss, Peeta and Finnick were in the monkey's section during a four o'clock hour, one of the "morphlings" sacrificed herself to protect Peeta. The sacrifice showed that the tributes in the games this year were worried about protecting healthier and younger tributes - specifically Katniss and Peeta because of their parts in taking down the Capital after the games.
