So people who where forced to interact more with each other elected to be around each other rather then people they interacted with less? The people in the same species would have to go the the same make up artists, the same choreographers, the same wardrobe place, they would be forced to interact more often with the same species then the others so its no wonder they would elect to eat together when they have probably formed friendships in their forced interactions.

Could it possibly have been that they didn't want to break character even if it was during a break?

In one of the documentaries made about the first movie series, Roddy McDowell mentions it. He said it just happened spontaneously. Gorillas with gorillas, chimps with chimps. No reason for it except humans wanting to be with their own "kind".

I've read about things like this before. Take a group of people and pass out 2-3 different coloured hats or shirts. Don't explain why they have to wear these things, just have them put them on. The green shirts clump together, the blues shirts clump together. At least at first. It's a weird thing about human nature to seek out a connection with others.

If you are an extra in a movie dressed as a chimp, surrounded by other people you don't know, you might feel more comfortable with the other chimps at first because there is a connection between the two of you. After a week on set, the people you know more than others will probably be chimps so you just continue to hang out with them.

That's completely reasonable, humans are highly social creatures and if we perceive a connection with someone else we tend to gravitate towards that person. I only asked my question because it was a group of actors

There's probably more to it than this, but I imagine that has roots in elementary school. Grouping up for activities and such. We're just used to joining together with our groups.

Probably to avoid confusion for the makeup artist.

Well, obviously. If I were a majestic Gorilla or a smart Chimpanzee I wouldn't want to hang around baboons and stuff.

Why are they eating with masks on?
