Could it be that Silly was using caliper in a refernce to the Victorian
Era belife that intelligence could be equated with skull measuremnets?
Thus if the smart monkey was of such and such a measurment on the caliper
then maybe he was looking for other monkeys of who would fit said caliper,
the caliper that measured his intellect.

Hence "other monkeys of his intellectual caliper"
