Monkey massage anyone ?? Here’s a story I found on “The Daily Mail” website:
Care for a monkey massage? Grey langurs spotted treating a wild dog to a grooming session in India
- Monkeys spotted grooming a wild dog in Rajasthan, India
- Pampered dog lay down as the langur monkeys massaged its head
This wild dog enjoyed extra special treatment when a group of monkeys included it in their pampering session.
The pampered dog lay down to make itself more comfortable as the grey langur monkeys fussed around it and stroked its fur in Rajasthan, India.
After treating the dog to a head massage, the monkeys set about grooming one another.
Pampered: The monkeys set about grooming a wild dog in Rajasthan, India
The unique moment was captured by wildlife photographer Cyril Ruoso, from Lailly in France, who had been observing the monkeys.
'I was following a gray langur troop and they came across a wild dog,' the 42-year-old said.
'People were offering food to the monkeys and several dogs were around to take advantage of the kind visitors. The monkeys and dogs interacted in a very friendly manner, and the langurs even started to groom the dog - it was very happy about that the dog decided to make itself more comfortable by resting on the floor and the monkeys continued to stroke it,' he said.
Fastidious: Groups of monkeys are often spotted grooming one another
Mr Ruoso, a keen observer of monkeys and apes, said it was the first time he had witnessed a scene like it.
'When I take photographs I like to be surprised by what I've seen,' he said.
'And this kind of inter-species reaction was very surprising as you don't expect this kind of behaviour from different animals.'
