Monkey Business 4 - Happy Family

Saw this family enjoying the warm morning sun after the overnight rain at the Central Catchment Nature Reserve last week end.

This is their home and this is the place that they belongs to. There are plenty of food in the reserve and enough to feed every of their family member. However, things changed when people start to feed them. Out of convenience, out of curiosity and perhaps the fancy packing of humans food, some started to rely on human food instead of finding their own food in the reserve.

When they start to depend on humans food, they will become aggressive and start to snatch food whenever they see people eating or carry bag that look like carrying food. When the monkey 'walk out' from the forest, they can get themselves killed by the passing traffic.

Help them and also help ourselves...don't feed the monkey. Feeding the monkey is an offence and can be fined!

Monkey Business 3

No doubt that monkey are the very intelligent creature. I have seen long-tailed macaque on several occasions, doing things just like us - human being!

This time round, I saw long-tailed macaque trying to put on a shirt!
This macaque grab a shirt from a chair that someone place it there for drying.
It caught the attention of other monkey and all 3 of them trying to take control of the shirt.

This monkey managed to 'own' it and he grab the shirt running away from the rest.

It must have seen how human put on their shirt and this monkey trying to follow the same. It almost put it on!
To prevent other from getting the shirt, this macaque just run with the shirt to another corner and try to put on again. They are the smart one, now you agree?

If you miss my previous sightings on this smart creatures... read this:

Monkey Business 1 - having some real hot actions!!

Monkey Business 2 - trying to have easy food!
