It's a Monk-hee-hee-hee! The macaque who makes himself laugh by tickling his own feet

Post by Guest on Sat Jul 30, 2011 8:14 am

This cheeky monkey couldn't help bursting out into a beautiful grin after learning how to tickle his own feet. The long-tailed macaque was caught on camera in the Sacred Monkey Forest on the Indonesian island of Bali. At first the cute primate appeared to be itching his toes - but he soon started to laugh as he tickled his feet.


Adorable: Biologist Natalia Paklina caught this long-tailed macaque on camera in the Sacred Monkey Forest on the Indonesian island of Bali

The adorable pictures were captured by biologist Natalia Paklina, 51, who was visiting the site near Ubud while on holiday. Mrs Paklina, who has homes in Moscow, Russia and Enkhausen in the Netherlands, said: 'You are able to get quite close to the monkeys in the forest because they are used to humans.



'At first I thought he was scratching but then it looked like he was tickling himself and laughing. For people on Bali these monkeys are sacred and associated with divine monkey-warrior Hanuman. It means that they get given what they want by the locals so they have a lot to be happy and laugh about.'
