Monkey hitches a ride on deer
Through his Instagram, Ohshima explained about the interaction between the two animals by revealing that the monkey used a branch as a springboard to mount the deer, a scene that probably occurred out of pure fun.
The image was titled “Forest Rodeo”, which means “Forest Rodeo”, capturing the unprecedented — and funny — essence of this unique moment in nature.
Scientists note that, although these interactions are rarely recorded, they occur relatively frequently in this region. It almost looks like a mirage, doesn't it?
Such observations reveal a fascinating aspect of animal behavior in nature. For example, monkeys have been documented removing insects from the backs of deer, demonstrating a kind of symbiotic relationship in which both animals benefit.
There are cases in which primates have been seen throwing fruit from trees towards the deer, which can also be an interesting form of interaction between the animals.
