Scientists carefully placed a high-detail animatronic ‘spy monkey’ near the site of a troop’s living quarters in an effort to gather information about their behavior. But it didn’t take long before things took a particularly interesting turn…
Some of the monkeys roughhoused with the spy monkey, and after it suffered a great fall, it appeared as though the spy monkey had fallen to its death. Members of the troop then went to check on the spy monkey and determined that it was lifeless.
As you might come to expect, the monkeys had no idea that this was a fake; instead, they witnessed a lifeless body shortly after a tragic incident. What we see here is a troop of monkeys mourning the loss of a member, with each one saying its goodbyes to the spy monkey.
Members of the troop are seen here gathering around the lifeless spy monkey and hugging one another. Some of the empathetic monkeys are seen looking away from the spy monkey, which indicates remorse.
