monkey with a bottle

By Katy Gill


This monkey doesn’t mess around when she’s thirsty – well, there’s no time for lids in the wild!

Video shows the mother drinking out of her mouth-made drinking hole at the bottom of the bottle.

However her toddler is more clued on, trying to show his mother how to open the lid.

Puskar Nepal, 21-year-old freelance photographer, captured this innocent sight in Swayambhunath, more commonly known as Nepal’s Monkey Temple.

Puskar said: “I was sitting on a bench with a bottle of water in one hand and a bag on the other hand.

“Suddenly a thirsty monkey snatched the bottle from my hand and the younger one joined her.

“She made a small hole at the bottom of the bottle with her sharp teeth.

“It looked like the younger one was trying to open the cap on a number of occasions and teach his mom the right way to drink water from the bottle.

“I was too close to them capturing the moment and I was afraid of them snatching my camera!”
