Monkeys cool off by jumping from rope ladder into pool


Adorable footage shows monkeys cooling off by leaping from a rope ladder into a pool.

The primates were dealing with the heat while temperatures soared to 35C in Lopburi province, central Thailand.

Footage shows how they would clamber up the sides to a rope ladder strung over the paddling pool before crashing down into the water below.

Lopburi, around 100 miles north of the capital Bangkok, has a large population of wild monkeys and locals have built the mini-park for them to play in.

They believe that the creatures are lucky and bring wealth to the area, so they are often treated to snacks and treats.
