If you want to relax at the end of the day, watch the monkeys and you will surely find yourself rolling to the floor, laughing. Interestingly, these animals have the inherent nature to make people laugh. Perhaps, this is because they resemble human beings in many ways. And for this, anybody looking at this animal can relate well. For sure, anybody watching monkeys know the fact that they are animal. But since they can act and appear like human, this character makes them a lot different from other animal species.


Funny monkey gestures can be..


Covering eyes with their hands

This can be strange to look at especially when they do it in the absence of glaring sun or light. This means that they don’t want to be disturbed. They are attempting to keep anyone present at bay.


Tapping another monkey

You may wonder what it means when a monkey taps another monkey. Well, this simply means they want to say “stop that”. Hence, if the other monkey is doing something, this has to be stopped.


Slapping an object or flinging one’s hand

Do you ever wonder why a monkey slaps an object for no reason? Sometimes, it may even be flinging one’s hand. Such gesture means “go away”.  Obviously, the monkey wants to be alone.


Monkey raining one’s arm

Meaning they want to have something. Hence, if you happen to visit a zoo and the monkey raise its arm, it is simply telling you that you need to give whatever you are holding.


Studies conducted by scholars suggest that Orangutans use 40 gestures to communicate with their peers. With such, they show their emotion and the things that they want done. And they never stop doing one thing until they finally obtain what they want. Such actions may look funny but these have deeper meanings which spectators like you need to know. Indeed, monkeys are not only special creatures but they are kind of interesting too!
