This Baby Monkey Was Found Clinging To His Dead Mother's Back

A touching story about the power of maternal instincts and a lucky baby monkey

Posted on

While there, they found a dead female Green Vervet Monkey. Upon closer inspection, this baby monkey was discovered clinging to her back.

Tricyn states, " I won't lie, I teared up when I had to tell a little girl who was watching that the mommy was just sleeping when we had to pull the baby off in front a group of children"

In the morning, they took him to one of the "monkey hot-spots", Shipwreck.


Shipwreck is a popular restaurant and bar on the Caribbean Ocean that backs up to the forest and mountains and is known for its large Green Vervet Monkey population.

Here's a video of how it all went down
