Outdoor Wednesday: Wild Monkeys in the city

The monkey is eyeing Olivia's ice cold drink. ignoring Chris.

The monkeys up on the tree pretending to ignore Olivia while she entices them with a biscuit.

The children are entertained by the monkey's antics. It was holding a mango while walking on two legs. Watch out Jessie, he will grab your water bottle before you can say ,"Boo!"
Lincoln plays dead as he watches the monkey eat a mango totally oblivious of him.

"You can't see them, but they are there. Monkeys were camouflaged in the tree trunks but we could see their eyes watching us, it's so eerie, "Jessie tells Chris and Olivia.


Lincoln, Olivia and Thomas are back in Australia and this is one experience they will never forget.

The Macaque monkeys at the MacRitchie Reservior in Singapore fascinated them so much during their last trip two years ago that they wanted to go again with heir Singaporeon cousins. Singapore is an ultra modern city and is one place you don't expect to see Macaque monkeys in a modern city.

The monkeys are wild as they live in the reserve and they eat from the mango trees. If you happen to be under the mango trees, you will be pelted by the stones. The monkeys aren't scared of you and they even steal your food right in front of your eyes.

How strange is it to see wild monkeys?! I've only seen them at the zoo and one in Rome (with an organ). Thanks for sharing! Dropping by from Outdoor Wednesday,

That's awesome! We have wild animals around here, but nothing like those monkeys.

What wonderful pictures of monkeys in a city! How amazing. The kids must have loved seeing them; I know I would!

The monkeys have adapted to an urban life style!

Better not start feeding them otherwise they'll be very dependent on human and eventually become the aggressors and started grabbing food!
