Translation: Why didn’t you find him a spoon to eat soup? LOL

Glossing over netizens’ concern over the monkey’s health, one viewer jokingly suggested that the OP should have helped to find the monkey a spoon so that he could eat the soup.


Hope the monkey enjoyed its meal


These viral stories could contribute to evidence that monkeys do exhibit behavioral parallels to their human counterparts. It’s indeed an interesting theory to consider.

Anyway, we hope that the monkey enjoyed its dish, and is still healthy after the meal.
