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. Smile Even in the '70s, there were big signs telling tourists not to feed the monkeys but no one took any notice. 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
