trade for food

monkey thief

印尼一個廟宇附近的長尾獼猴,會搶走訪客的物品如眼鏡、帽子相機、甚至售票亭的現金,並要以食物跟牠們換取。研究人員指這行為已遍佈那區的猴群。

the long-tailed macaques live near an indonesian temple are grabbing visitors items like glasses, hats, cameras and even cash from the ticket booth, and they would not let go until the they are offered food. similar behaviors are fond in the groups of monkeys that live near the temple that spend more time around visitors.
