Playful Capuchin monkey rides on cow’s back on farm in Costa Rica


Amusing footage shows a playful Capuchin monkey riding on the back of a cow on a farm in Costa Rica.

The wild primate was spotted by a farmer who went to check on the animal enclosures in Puntarenas on March 17.

Farmer Jonathan Cenas said the monkey was hugging the cow and the farm animal did not mind having the tiny creature on his back.

He said: ‘The monkey was so cute. It was hugging my cow from behind. The cow didn’t seem to mind it.’

Capuchin monkeys are mostly found in the tropical forests of Central America and South America as far south as northern Argentina.
