🐵 Chimps and humans may share an ancient body language. A 2018 PLOS Biology study analyzed gestures made by both chimpanzees and bonobos — closely related members of the great ape family — and found a 90 percent overlap, far more than would have been possible by chance. These gestures included flinging hands to shoo another ape away or stroking the mouth of another ape to indicate the ape wanted the other animal's food. Interestingly, humans are able to understand what many of these gestures mean as well, indicating that perhaps the gestures were used by our last common ancestor. Another study supported this finding and showed that toddlers between the ages of 12 months and 24 months share nearly 90 percent of gestures such as jumping, hugging, stomping and throwing objects.

Normally monkeys don't really like human interaction and they tend to hide from us.
These monkeys, however, often steal food from innocent pilgrims who come to pray at this sacred temple.
Can't blame them, they have baby monkeys to feed ;)
