Cell Phone Monkeys
A troop of mischievous monkeys at London Zoo have had to be re-trained after showing too much interest in mobile phones.
The ring tones and bright lights proved just too attractive to the squirrel monkeys in their new no-barrier enclosure. A short training programme was developed which put an end to their interest and the monkeys are once again roaming their environment in a more natural state of play.
