How do animals deal with menstruation?

I know that some primates, other than humans, menstruate (female.) But they don't have pads or tampons, how do they stop blood flowing everywhere, possibly attracting predators? How do they maintain hygeine during menstruation? Do they just bleed freely?

    They procreate before menstruation. Or, for some, they can actually reabsorb their endometrial tissue! Otherwise, I can imagine them just sitting on pieces of wood or even using plants, like leaves and cottons, as tampons. Keep in mind, this is just a guess. I'm no scientist!

    They do not 'bleed freely' and most mammals will attend to their vaginas in one way or another to make the bleeding less noteworthy.
