Animals are all pretty territorial when it comes to food. Even if they’ve never come across another animal before, if that animal is eating their food, it’s no friend.
One adorable video, called “What happen when baby monkey Soo meets chicken, Baby Soo helps grandfather”, banked more than 9 million views on YouTube – and it’s hardly surprising, as it features a baby monkey meeting chickens.
In the video, the little monkey can be seen hopping around the floor, picking up the chicken feed and putting it into his mouth.
He’s not too pleased when he rounds a corner and discovers chickens eating the feed too. At first, he stays wary, hanging back and keeping to his own feed. But as the chickens approach him, pecking a little too close to comfort, it’s obvious that it’s starting to get on his nerves.
It doesn’t take long before he runs at them, sending them flapping away so he can enjoy his food in a bit of peace and quiet… but not for long. Every time the little monkey sends the chickens away, they’re soon pecking at his side once more.
They probably don’t know what to make of this tiny creature, smaller than some of them, waving them off like he owns the place. Especially as he’s wearing what look like baby clothes, deep pink with white stripes and a pattern of bear faces across them.
The video only gets better when the family dog joins the scene, and it’s obvious that he and the little monkey are friends. Baby Soo runs straight for his body and tries, unsuccessfully, to climb onto his back.
He’s still too little to get up there himself, so one of his human family picks him up and places him there.
It’s a comical sight, a monkey sitting on a dog’s back like a very small human riding a horse. For his part, the dog seems completely unfazed. He just stands still and lets the little guy climb all over him.
Not many people can get so close and friendly with monkeys, but this family of dogs, animals and humans are obviously very familiar with monkey Soo. Though it’s frowned upon to raise a monkey as a pet, monkey Soo has a unique story that means he probably would have died had he not been rescued.
According to the YouTube channel’s description:
“Monkey Soo was found by a villager when the villager ride on the boat to the island for work as the farmer.”
The villager noticed that the baby monkey was sitting alone without his family during the flood season. He thought that he appeared to have floated through the water for a long way, and there was no hope of reuniting him with his monkey parents.
Taking pity on Soo, the villager brought him back to town, and the owner of the channel took him on as a pet. They wrote that they would provide food to Soo until he grew up. Hopefully Soo will be released back into the wild at that time, where he will be able to fend for himself.
It’s clear that monkey Soo is bringing lots of laughs to his family, and he’s definitely a YouTube hit as well! Hundreds of thousands of people watch the videos of monkey Soo bathing, sitting on a hammock, riding on a boat, and drinking out of a baby bottle.
