Vervet monkeys like this one occasionally carry out raids in food fields in Africa. To be succesfull they assign sentry positions during the raid. He's one such monkey seated very comfortably strategically to have an all round view ensuring safety of his troupe. By the time a human arrives in the food field he will have long given out the humans location and troupe will long be in safety away from the farm.
