The Alcoholic Monkey

The Alcoholic Monkey

A friend sent this link, a 3-minute video made by the BBC about the Vervet monkeys in the Caribbean that have a taste for alcohol.  This was filmed in St Kitts.  Our monkeys in Barbados are green monkeys and I have never heard of them having a taste for alcohol or stealing drinks the way we see on this video. If anyone knows otherwise, would you please let the rest of us know?  Very curious behavior.

    They remind me of the ‘barmy army’ who follow their cricket team around the world. That’s not meant to offend; just factual!

  2. Great expression! “Barmy army.” Ha!
