Cheeky monkeys unafraid of humans used to be such a novelty for tourists at the Botanic Garden. Wonder if the object it's holding was nicely given to it or simply snatched off some unwitting human.

Either that is a very small monkey or that cone of ice cream is a jumbo-sized serving.

Tourists loved to watch and take pictures of monkeys peeling the bananas and popping groundnut shells.

It is a jumbo cone. There is an ice cream cart selling them at the gate. I can remember this particular cone was chocolate flavoured when I saw the tourist eating it Smile
