Cheeky Monkeys – Too Smart For Tourists
One thing that's common at manyTourist Trapsaround the world is that even the local animals are in on the act of trying to fleece as many tourist dollars off you as possible!Especially when it comes to theCheeky Monkeysaround the place – and I think because they are closely related to us humans,that means that they're smart enough to get away with almost anything.Including removing your entire travel budget from you!If fact,they're probably smarter than many humans!!
Sometimes,these primates have learnt over time how to pinch things from unsuspecting tourists – anything from wallets and purses to maybe even the shirt off your back if you're lucky!!
And here is another example – check out thisCheeky Monkeyphoto that was taken by my friend The Curious Drifter inBali,Indonesia.
The Cheeky Monkey Explanation
Anyway,he says ‘this is a monkey at Ulu Watu temple in Bali that had stolen a tourists hat.A holy man at the temple tried to trick the monkey into releasing the hat by giving him a supposedly delicious banana,but as you will notice the monkey still has both the hat and the banana :)'
Smart arse!Looks like this monkey is a whole lot smarter than we give him credit for.He's probably done this trick millions of times and he's been around the block!!
I've been to Ulu Watu temple (see my post onThings To Do In Bali) and I can confirm,that you have to be very careful 亚博app官方下载about anything in your pockets when you visit the temple.Some monkeys even try to wrestle large and heavy digital SLR cameras off people!!
Maybe the silly tourists might have more luck obtaining their possessions from these primates if they wore theCheeky Monkey T-shirt Style Costume for Kids.
