Strange

Selfie gone wrong

oh no

Messing with monkeys can sometimes get you into trouble. Just ask this young woman who decided to take a selfie with her new found fr enemy. Animals are certainly unpredictable and can be great friends to humans (well most of the time anyway). These photos were posted on Reddit by user ThatGuy1331 who is her friend (at least for now). A shame there isn’t a video capturing the moment—however these photos tell the story.

Everything was going fine for this feline until the monkey got annoyed by her. Being completely unpredictable monkeys are believed to be named from the Dutch mannequin “little man”. The origination of the word monkey is unclear. It is possible the word came from Moneke, the name of the son of Martin the Ape in a medieval animal story.


Monkeys make up two of the three groups of simian primates, Old World monkeys and New World monkeys. The other group are apes. A monkey is any primate that is not a human, pro simian, or ape. Spider monkeys swing by their arms in the trees—but actually most monkeys don’t do this, instead they will run over top branches.

These sometimes menacing creatures are playful and mischievous. Monkeys will use various vocalizations, facial expressions, and body movements to communicate much like humans do to some degree. It is no wonder we are closely related in the animal kingdom with our behavior similarities. Monkeys express their affection by grooming each other and keeping themselves in good standing with others of their kind.

The threat of monkeys disappearing is real. In certain habitats especially those of them living in tropical forest regions. These areas are disappearing at an alarming rate. There are varying different sizes of monkeys with the Pygmy Marmoset being the smallest at 117-159 millimeters (four and a half to six inches) in length and weighing a mere 85 to 140 grams (three to five ounces). The largest monkey known is the male Mandrill being almost 1 meter (3.3 feet) long and weighing about 35 kilograms (77 pounds).

Contrary to popular belief, monkeys peel their bananas and do not eat the skins.
