Just monkeying around: Primate takes phone and then selfies

Monkey selfie

But a bigger surprise came when he checked his phone and found a series of monkey selfies and videos recorded in the phone.

The 20-year-old man told BBC that he realised his smartphone was gone when he woke up at around 11am on Saturday morning, September 12.

The weird thing was that while the thief had not stolen anything else from his room, he had removed his phone case and thrown it under the bed.

He said he tried calling his phone for two days but there was no trace. They called the phone and could hear it ringing in the jungle behind their house.

The muddied phone was found beneath a palm tree.

He said the photos and videos were hilarious.

The quick clip documents the monkey action that allegedly occurred during the hours of the device's disappearance, complementing photos of tree branches taken by the malicious monkey.

You see, there are many places around the world where monkeys live near or in urban areas such as this, but Zackryds did clarify that there were no instances of monkeys ever being seen, let alone stealing from people, in his neighborhood.

Pastor Marlowe Washington told WROC-TV: "Whoever was the host of this party needs to be held accountable for this". He added that the police didn't know about the gathering before responding to the shooting.

The family now suspects the monkey entered through his brother's open window before making off with the phone.

"I was shocked to find my phone misplaced and a bit broken".

"But later when I opened the gallery I ran out of words".

The monkey left his pictures and video on the stolen phone. Besides the various social media it found itself on, it also made headlines in the local as well as global media.

A Malaysian man says he found monkey selfies and videos on his missing phone a day after retrieving it in the jungle behind his house.

Thief: The monkey was better at taking phones than pictures. Regardless, it's a nice photo!

This is not the first time monkeys have established their love for selfies.
