When a pair of mischievous macaques find themselves at the top of a harrowingly tall pole at the foot of a pool, one ends up going for gold with an incredible, albeit unintentional dive into the water below.
These thrill-seeking monkeys were captured on a BBC program known as “Spy in the Wild.”
This show is formed around the intriguing premise of a camera-toting robot with an extremely lifelike animal appearance getting up close and personal with the very creatures it was made to resemble.
As animals interact with these robots, viewers are given special insight into their secret and often complex lives.
Filmed from various angles, the high-diving macaque was shown to have been given a little unrequested ‘assistance’ with his stunt from a friend.
Thankfully, he was OK after the jump, if not a little less trusting of his closest pal.
