Monkeys love ice lollies – I have the proof right here!
We watched this spider monkey eating this while it became increasingly exasperated with the flies which kept settling on the lolly. It would lick, then squeak, squeak, squeak with annoyance and jump away to try and shake them off. Very interesting to see that monkeys get annoyed by flies just the way we do.
This was at the Summit Zoo just outside Panama City.
