  1. Apparently you should make a kissy face, I read that somewhere in a biology book. It’s a sign to show that you’re friendly. But don’t smack your lips, that apparently means that “you want to search their skin for bugs and eat them”. I could be absolutely wrong, because I didn’t do any extra research except for that book.

  2. Most places who have wild macaques nearby literally have 100s of signs showing those warnings.

    yet she chose to ignore all of those signs…

    I have seen wild macaques in Japan, Singapore, Gibraltar & Bali, and all of the areas have signs showing you not to show your teeth to them.

  3. I’ve warned people about this over and over. Macaques are bastard animals.

    They’re not cute and cuddly and fun. They are evil, opportunistic, thieving, conniving shitbag creatures from hell and if you see one while travelling stay the fuck away from it. Imagine a feral cat with a problem-solving brain and the moral compass of a meth addict. That’s a macaque.

  4. Saw these guys in Japan. Signs everywhere to avoid eye contact. They let you feed them from basically inside a cage, while the monkeys are outside. I accidentally looked one in the eye and he took a swipe. I was scared to go out.

    Once outside, they avoided looking at me as much as I avoided looking at them. It was chill.

  5. Once in Bali a wild monkey came up to me while walking and held my hand, out of reflex to cuteness I smiled. Suddenly my hand was in its mouth. I got so scared I immediately stopped smiling, luckily the monkey didn’t bite and let me go.

    Guess the monkeys over there already understand people better than I understood monkeys

  6. Stay away from wild monkeys. Never a good time to get a picture. Stay away from wild monkeys. Although in a survival situation you may get close to finish them off. How? Find a monkey trail, dig a small hole with a kbar. Drop a shiny rock in that hole. Monkeys will see the rock on their travels cause they’re very curious, and greedy. Once they grab the rock if the holes done correctly they can’t remove their hand. They could, but they’re greedy. They’ll stay there and scream. Holding on to the rock. Walk up to them and take care of business. Taste like chicken. Source: JEST Phillipine Negrito guide. Saw it. Ate it. Much good protein.

  7. Pretty stoked that all the comments here are all explaining why she got attacked.

    Sometimes I feel like we might just end up making the world a decent place
