Monkeys Love to Take Selfies, Too

Turns out it's not just us humans who enjoy taking selfies ... primates like to pose for the camera too!

In Bali, Indonesia, one monkey ran off with a tourist's GoPro camera. In the video posted on YouTube, you can see the moment when the money snatches the camera and sprints away with the $5,000 camera as the dismayed owner shouts, "No, no, no!"

While some are laughing at the wild moment, not everyone believes in the video's authenticity. One user said: "I am so sick of GoPro's fake viral videos. (New account. Telling.) Serendipitous that you mananged (sic) to yell, 'It's a GoPro!' at the end. How stupid does GoPro think people are?"

Still, whether the video is authentic or not, the man whose camera was taken has been documenting his trip to Indonesia on Facebook. He's created an album, complete with the monkey selfie.

The description for the YouTube video explains the monkey managed to also steal the batteries in the camera, but in return, the owner got a pretty cool video. Who wouldn't want a monkey selfie?

Check out the full video here:

If you listen to the sound on the video near the end, you can hear the dude say "That's a $500.00 camera". NOT a $5,000.00 camera. AOL and HP at it again with the "sensational" crap headline.

This is a classic case of the Monkey having more brains then the human , I thought it was physically impossible for someone to be that stupid but he proves me wrong.

So if he stole it....did the monkey get full of guilt and return it? How otherwise did he get it back?

Obviously the monkey only borrowed it for a while.

There was a bar room piano player who owned a monkey. The monkey was allowed to amble along on the bar, and the patrons loved it. One evening the monkey on the bar suddenly peed in a patrons beer. (When ya gotta go, ya gotta go.) The Patron walked over to where the piano player was playing the piano and asked; "Say; do you know your monkey peed in my beer?" The piano player answered: No, but, if you hum a few "bars," I think I'll be able to play it.
