Wild Macaques Spotted On Camera High Diving Into Pool

When it comes to animals, we sometimes don’t expect them (or see them) enjoying activities that humans would do to have fun.   In this clip from PBS’s nature series “Spy in the Wild”, a group of wild macaque monkeys in India were spotted taking turns high diving into a pool.   Actually, this “pool” is an outdoor fountain, but it’s the same result. Watching the monkeys dive is absolutely hilarious and reminds me of how much fun it is for kids lining up to dive at the local pool.   Check out the monkeys for yourself...

Man Rescues Drowning Chimp From Certain Death

When visiting a zoo or animal exhibit, it is never advisable to enter an enclosure. Getting too close to a caged animal is dangerous for all involved – the animal and the human. Well, Rick Swope went against the grain and jumped in anyway – and you’ll be glad he did.   While visiting a new chimpanzee exhibit at the Detroit Zoo, Rick saw a chimp plummet into the enclosure’s water pond.

Rhesus macaques at the Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, England haven’t seen cars in a few years so the park wardens came up with a most unusual way to get the monkeys reacquainted with cars. The wardens, anticipating an influx of tourists in the coming spring and summer months, need these little mischief-makers to get used to the sight of cars again, and they used a car...

If Animals Could Talk And Were As Strange As Humans

The British are a bit of a strange bunch if their comedy is any indication. Don’t get us wrong, we love Monty Python and the movies involving Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, but it’s clear that British humor is a little different from American humor. Nevertheless, this is one of those incredibly British pieces we can’t help but enjoy. It’s often funny and perhaps a bit interesting to imagine if animals had more human qualities. This is no doubt where dressing up chips in suits and dresses came from. These days however, the internet has helped changed things and...
