Excitement turns to deflation as rhesus monkey gets same old gift
Open-mouthed with excitement, this monkey looked like any child on Christmas morning as he got stuck into opening his presents at Longleat Safari Park.
What was going to be inside the wrapping paper? Some berries? Strawberries? Anything to break the monotony of his daily diet of bananas, surely.
But as he ripped the wrapping away, his faced turned to shock and then apparent horror as the awful truth was revealed - there was to be no respite.
Despite having to make do with yet more bananas, it wasn't all bad news - the rhesus monkey and his friends were given Santa signs to play with.
They seemed happy as they monkeyed around and took it in turns to run around with and hide behind the signs.

In this troubled economy, maybe personal shopper for monkeys, is a potential new career.
Also, what denomination are these monkeys that they celebrate Christmas so early?
At least it wasn’t fruitcake.
I know how that monkey feels. That picture brings back childhood memories of getting socks.
Take a kid to the store and buy him socks. Don’t wrap them and put them under the Christmas tree.
I’m 68. It was a real big deal getting new socks. Remember, back then...we mended them. Who does that today??
Who gives out ipods full of 0bama's speeches for Christmas?
They need to steer clear of Kwanzaa, that’s for sure.
I'm that grown guy semi-surruptitiously peering at the nametags on the cool toys to see if, by some miracle, its for me and not little Timmy.
It's a rule.
What? I forget to clip my toenails sometimes.
Shuuush!...an old fashioned “heavy” fruitcake in a fancy Christmas can has a longer shelf life than any precooked food known to man!
I think the reporter made a mistake. It’s Hanukkah, that’s why the monkeys were getting presents. Bananas sounds more like a first or second night of Hanukkah present.
