Naughty Monkey at Uluwatu - Part 1


Do you think this guy needs glasses? I don't think so. He's one of so many naughty monkey at Uluwatu, Bali. They quietly like to follow visitors of Uluwatu and quickly grab small things they can grab from the visitors. The most annoying is they understand how important the things to you. Once they grab it they will run away until you come with the monkey tamer to trade in your things. Don't expect you can trade in value things or important thing with just peanuts, they wont trade in. For above glasses the monkey asking for eggs. What a monkey....

Charming! Remind me to wear contact lenses, if I ever visit Bali.

Hi AB: you wont necessarily find monkeys at any area in Bali. It's just at certain places only like Uluwatu, Monkey Forest and Alas Kedaton. Don't worry, Bali is still paradise after all :).

I have a similar experience. Monkey sneaked up on me and snatched my glasses. However, 1 local guy was nearby and tried to barter trade using a banana. However, monkey ignored him - local guy then shouted at the monkey and it prompted dropped my glasses. Local guy picked my glasses up and demanded 50,000 Rp for the return. The whole thing looked staged - monkeys are trained or perhaps conditioned to steal in such a sacred place - what a shame!!!
