Monkey see monkey! Hilarious moment: Primate grabs a zoo visitor’s cell phone and flips it over to film her freaking out
This is the moment when a cheeky monkey grabs a zoo visitor’s cell phone and flips it over to film her.
Gracey Sango, 21, and her family were visiting Jorge Town amusement park in Davao de Oro, Philippines, on Monday when they encountered a group of monkeys.
Everything seems fine as Mrs. Sango gently feeds the monkey some food.
But in a flash, the monkey snatches the phone from her, triggering a moment of pure panic.
The 21-year-old can be heard screaming and jumping up and down as she begs the monkey to return her phone.

Eventually, one of the other zoo visitors managed to retrieve the phone to save Ms. Sango from the embarrassment.
The group is then heard laughing as they realize what just happened to them.
This certainly wasn’t the first time a cheeky monkey had interacted with a person.

In the Philippines, the three most common monkey species are the crab-eating macaque, the long-tailed macaque, and the Philippine long-tailed macaque.
Although it is illegal to keep monkeys as pets in the Philippines, many people still do so.

Earlier this month, a hilarious video was released showing a dogged spider monkey climbing on a US tourist and pulling down her t-shirt.
As the animal climbs the woman’s legs with its prehensile tail and latches onto the tourist’s shirt, panic quickly breaks out as she says to her friend, ‘I don’t know what to do.’ I’m scared.’
