Monkey steals camera during family selfie and flips up his middle finger
A family burst out laughing when they realised the monkey they posed for a selfie with had flipped the middle finger.
While in Bali, the Hicks family, from Australia, visited the popular Ubud Monkey Forest where a local grabbed their phone for the holiday snap of a lifetime.
Mum Judy, 37, dad Simon, 36, and their three children Elijah, 13, Jimmy, 11, and Kayleigh, eight, all squatted down to pose for a selfie with the monkey.
While getting a selfie with a monkey in the front is impressive in itself, the family didnt realise the naughty animal had actually flipped the finger before looking through the holiday pictures.
She told of the moment: While we were there, a guide offered to take our photo. But as he did, a monkey suddenly came in front of the camera.
The guide had peanuts in his hand and then began feeding him. It was really funny.
As I was flicking through the photos afterwards, I noticed that in one of them the monkey was actually giving us the finger.
I showed my husband and we both started laughing. We thought it was hilarious.
The monkey definitely had a cheeky persona going on.
We had such a great time there and these funny photos made it even better.
The priceless snap was captured during the familys holiday to Bali in December 2018 and has been shared online for the first time this week.
