Shameless little thieves

What a picture of innocence. Well don't believe it for one second.

These vervet monkeys were snuggling for warmth on a cool day, at the same time trying to look cute while begging for food. The temptation to give in to them was strong, but we did not give in.

They are shameless beggars and also inveterate thieves. As we did not feed them, they helped themselves to our hotcross buns, in a daring hit and run snatch, with four of us sitting around the table.

Hilarious. We used to have a Golden Retriever that would do the same thing!
