16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A wild monkey eating peanuts from my hand in Africa.
Me and three friends were riding down the road through Meknes. We passed a “Monkey Crossing Sign” and thought that was very unique since we are from the USA. Down the road we see a crowd of cars pulled off to the side of the road. Out of curiosity we pulled over to see what the commotion was. We soon see about twenty five wild monkeys on the shoulder of the road. We get out of our car and buy some peanuts to feed the monkeys. Right after I took this photo the monkey grabbed the entire bag of peanuts that lay at my feet and ran away!
