Thailand – Cliff diving monkeys, you say?

Via: Coconuts – Thailand

Turns out humans are not the only primates that like to cliff dive: Monkeys do too!

A new YouTube video shot in Hua Hin shows a group of the little rascals hopping off a big rock into the ocean, with a zeal they normally reserve for eating bananas.

Jump to 0:38 for a perfectly executed triple jump that will take your breath away.

We’re guessing that these monkeys are most likely macaques, although we can’t be sure from this distance. Any monkey experts out there?

personal thought:

I’ suspect they are doing it for the treats, but it also looks like they are also having a great time.

Hey, for them!
