So apparently I'm a monkey magnet 🙈🐒 They loved my pants and headwrap (was trying to hide my hair but I think they sensed there was something hidden with trinkets under there) I was highly anxious and scared but fascinated ✨ HALP 🥰🥺😰😂 they're soft and harmless but so fidgety! @monkeyforestubudsanctuary
Парк обезьян (crab-eating macaques) в Убуде, Бали, раскинулся на 12,5 гектарах леса. Заповедник вмещает 750 мартышек, которые делятся на шесть групп по своим ареалам обитания.
Принадлежит парк деревне Паденгтегал, жители которой обслуживают парк и следят за чистотой.
Обезьянки очень контактные - их можно покормить купленными тут же бананами - за угощение приматы готовы залезть на голову.
Также они не стесняются залазить в сумки, рюкзаки, срывать с туристов очки и украшения.
Парк популярный и ежемесячно его посещают 120 000 туристов.
Как следствие, можно наблюдать уникальное явление - обезьян с ожирением.
На территорию парка не допускают собак, поскольку мартышки их боятся.

A lot going on in this photo. I have no clue how to caption this one.
FYI- f you’re not a fan of baby monkeys, you will not enjoy my latest Stories. But, if you’re like me + can’t get enough of the little guys, you’re in for a whole lotta cuteness 🙈🙉🙊 #thebalisurvivalguide
A refreshing smoothie bowl breakfast @milkandmadu & obligatory fresh coconut before heading to the Sacred Monkey Forest 🐒 (SWIPE RIGHT FOR CUTEST BABY MONKEY & it’s mother! ) I had to get the smoothie without any granola because it contained honey 🍯 Nonetheless, it was still very delicious! -
Btw how cute is the heart-shaped cut-out on the coconut! I can’t get over just how cheap the coconuts are here in comparison to Australia! The coconut water itself is isn’t as sweet as the coconut water we purchase from stores but I suppose that’s a good thing because it means I can drink the entire coconut and not feel sweetened out 😂
Happy weekend friends! Hope that you are all testing yourselves to something special ✨🥰
At the entrance to the #HolySpring at the #SacredMonkeyForest in #Ubud and I had the pleasure to enjoy this #Bali adventure with @eros.s and to go #MonkeyingAround in this #beautiful, #crazy and #loved #Indonesia haunt. And I've seen this dude three times, and in three countries, this year alone. #Amazing! Who knows how many times it'll be next year... You never know where the #road takes you, but I hope (and I'm sure) they will cross more often 😏
Back at the #SacredMonkeyForest #Sanctuary and I tried to say hey to the #Macaque baby... Well, that didn't go over too well (signs say don't touch them or else mama will claw you, so distance is advised). The little nipper quickly went back and tried to hide from this strange human who was all chirpy and waving! May I add, the likes of which #Ubud, #Bali, #Indonesia may not have seen before - look at that #bravery 😂 Man was crazy. I also hung out with two other critters and couldn't decide which to assess... So I'm caught in the middle (all blurry!). Ah, a day with a #LongTailed #Monkey or 700... Ah 🤗
Doing everything in my power not to sneak one of these monkeys home with me 🐒🐒🐒 #thebalisurvivalguide
To #Ubud, #Bali, #Indonesia I ventured. In this series I decided to #interact with this #majestic #Macaque ( #Balinese #LongTailed #Monkey). Again, I love to negotiate with animals and I'll say this... I jumped pretty quick when this #BadBoy went for me. The #SacredMonkeyForest is a #sanctuary created around the #Hindu principle of #TriHataKarana (Three ways to reach spiritual and physical well-being), which seeks to make people live harmoniously during their lives. Well... These guys we're cool... But I didn't get too up close. Next time, eh 😉
