Man Shows Up At Friend’s Pool, Finds It Full Of Monkeys
Sometimes it's so hot all you want to do is jump in a pool - and apparently monkeys are no different.
Michael Derek Rout was at a friend's home in South Africa when he looked outside and found that a troupe of vervet monkeys had commandeered the pool. A video shows the happy family running around, playing and generally acting exactly like a boisterous group of humans would.
They do cannonballs.
They run by the pool.
They mess with the cleaning tools.
They give in to their elders.
And, of course, they enjoy a cool swim.
Fortunately the humans involved seemed happy to let the monkeys have their day - which they certainly needed in the summer heat.
