Monkey Climbs a Tree, Bares its Fangs

Must say this monkey’s round head and soft brown fur made him look super-cute!


Well, this one seems to be in a bad temper! I believe quite a few of us assume this face when hungry or encounter unwanted intrusions at work 😬


I was sitting on a lawn with my husband, chatting. My hand bag was a few feet away from us. There were several trees about, with these monkeys rampaging. One of them climbed down, ran up to my bag and began peeking in. Another moment and he would have made off with it!

My husband said, “Shoo, shoo” (not calling for his shoes, of course) and I (quite pointlessly) cried, “Sorry, you can’t have it, buddy. I need the bag myself.” And we walked towards the scene. Well, I do not know which of us two he listened to—he scampered off, leaving my stuff intact.

The lesson is: it is important to watch out for ourselves when wild animals are around—irrespective of whether they are ferocious or not. Because, there are so many other naughty, playful ways in which they can get us!
