Squirrel Monkey Gets All Up in Deer's Personal Space

A red brocket in Yolosa, Bolivia, was surprisingly calm, and very patient, as a black-capped squirrel monkey scampered all over its head.

The hilarious scene was captured at the La Senda Verde wildlife refuge by Natalia Cara de Medeiros, a biologist who volunteers at the sanctuary. She says that both animals were rescued from wildlife trafficking.

The rowdy monkey is part of a troop of primates that roam freely at the sanctuary, according to De Medeiros.

“They not only steal other animals’ food but also interact with the ones that don’t really mind their presence,” she wrote in her video caption. Credit: Natalia Cara de Medeiros via Storyful
