Monkey desperately revives fellow unconscious monkey (video)

It’s a rather amazing video.

A monkey in India frantically bites and then dunks in water a fellow monkey who has fallen unconscious after touching some high-tension electrical wires over the local train system.

The second money eventually comes around.

It’s just amazing to see how much human, self-aware, animals can be.

    Are you suggesting that monkey ‘tripped’ and fell?

    Ouch. That one actually physically hurt :)

  • Sort of points up how deeply rooted our tendency to take care of each other really is.

  • I saw a monkey in India that had a missing front left paw. Actually more than ‘saw’ but rather knew him because he was constantly somewhere near our apartment building. Not only had the little dude learned to walk upright everywhere, he had this habit where he liked to wrap a length of cloth around his head like a hat or mini-turban.

    I once left a length of tattered old dish-towel outside, just for the heck of it, and and tore it so it’d be one longish length of cloth. Damned if that monkey wasn’t wearing it the next day.

    And yes: Monkeys could easily figure out how to open doors, any of them, not just this one clever fellow. In fact, I have a whole bunch of “holy crap they’re really smart” stories from our time there.

    For some reason, every time you post an NBC video, it never loads for me. Happens on the NBC site, too. Must be some monkey business with NBC and videos.

    And we say humans are the highest order.

    The poor dude looked absolutely hung over!

    Being raised Christian, I learned that humans were the only ones with souls. I always had a problem with the concept, and this video is just one example of why.
