Coca cola; just what the monkey ordered.

Filed in Photo of the Day

A family of five monkeys travels in a circle through the bush around our villages. A couple of weeks ago when they arrived back near our home, I followed them with my camera. Trying to get good photographs of the monkeys wasn't easy but I managed to get a couple. I hope you like them.

Monkey with coke

The monkey found the coca cola in a rubbish bin, pulled it out, moved to the tree and began drinking through the straw! How did he learn this?

Another photo, this time a different monkey, without the coca cola ;-)

    That is such a GREAT photo!! Really like the one where the monkey was drinking from the straw!

    Actually they seems to be quite bold.. hopefully they wont turn aggressive and invade ur homes!!

    Coz i brought my dog out for walks at a park in Singapore, and a grp of monkeys actually tried to attack my poor MinPin.. he was barking furiously and i just ran back to the car with my dad!
    really scary!!

    Wow, that is truly incredible. The little guy probably picked it up from ordinary folk like us. (:

    That is indeed a funny photo! I hope the monky could sleep well at night with all the caffeine. At least this monkey is not like the chimpanzee in a zoo who picked up smoking which I saw on CNN.

    i love the photos! hehe, esp the one with the coke :) the photos reminds me a lot of what i normally see in national geographic channel! :)
    i don't like monkeys though because im afraid of them. you see? a monkey actually attacked my brother in law by grabbing his eyeglasses and played with it before finally smashing it with his feet on the ground! :D if i were in his shoes, i would probably faint with fright :)
