The images show the resident Colombian capuchin of the zoo with white faces (Cebus capucinus) standing by the glass wall and holding the large rock with both hands.

The spectators watched in shock as the monkey hit the glass rim of the enclosure.

As the animal progresses in its desperate attempt at freedom, the creaking glass alerts the scaled-down creature.

Tourist Wang remembered: & # 39; The monkey was grinding the stone, then he started beating it on the glass.

& # 39; The monkey chased himself away, but he came back to look again and even touched him. & # 39;

Zhengzhou Zoo employee Tian Shuliao told the local media: & This monkey is different from other monkeys. He knows how to use tools to break walnuts.

& # 39; If we feed walnuts to other monkeys, they only know they have to bite.

& # 39; But it had never hit the glass before. This is the first time. It is tempered glass, so it would never have come out.

& # 39; After it happened, we picked up all rocks and all & # 39; weapons & # 39; removed. & # 39;

Tian said the glass would be replaced and it would increase patrols to ensure that no animals attempt to escape.
