What the monkey sees, the monkey does! Hilarious moment primate grabs zoo visitor’s phone and flips it over to film her freaking out
This is the moment a cheeky monkey grabs a zoo visitor’s phone and turns it around to film her.
Gracey Sango, 21, and her family were visiting Jorge Town amusement park in Davao de Oro, Philippines, on Monday when they came across a troop of monkeys.
Everything seems to be in order as Mrs. Sango gently feeds the monkey some food.
However, in a flash, the monkey snatches the phone from him, causing a moment of panic.
The 21-year-old can be heard screaming and jumping up and down as she begs the monkey to give her back her phone.
Everything seems to be going perfectly well when the zoo visitor gently hands the monkey some food.
However, in a flash, Gracey Sango was now filmed by the monkey.
The terrified 21-year-old can be seen trying to retrieve the phone from the monkey’s hands.
Eventually, one of the other zoo visitors managed to retrieve the phone to avoid Ms. Sango’s embarrassment.
We can then hear the group laughing realizing what just happened to them.
It certainly wasn’t the first time a cheeky monkey had interacted with a person.
Earlier this month, a hilarious video was released showing a A tenacious spider monkey climbs on an American tourist and pulls down her t-shirt..
As the animal climbs up the woman’s legs with its prehensile tail and clings to the tourist’s shirt, panic quickly sets in when she says to her friend, “I don’t know what do, all of you. I am scared.’
In the Philippines, the three most common monkey species are the crab-eating macaque, the common long-tailed macaque, and the Philippine long-tailed macaque.
Although it is illegal to keep monkeys as pets in the Philippines, many people still do so.
The rare macaque is said to be endemic to the Philippines and is considered an endangered species.
