Not expecting the monkeys would take charge and begin directing their own film, Cole Weber, from California, left his GoPro camera in a tree in Manuel Antonio Park in the hope of getting some stealth wildlife footage.

The 18 year-old high school student says the white face Capuchins discovered the camera sitting in a tree and the curiosity got the best of them, one of them nabbing the camera and began filming himself.

“There were a group of ten or 11 monkeys that were sleeping, playing and eating near a trail through the park. I put my GoPro in a tree, hoping that one of them might come near it for a cool video. I honestly had no idea one of them would take it! When I saw him take the GoPro, my immediate fear was that he would go deeper into the forest and I wouldn’t be able to get it back,” Weber said.

After realizing that the camera didn’t taste any good they got tired of it and eventually dropped the GoPro camera, that is when one of the monkey came and picked it up, took it back to the trees, but dropped it soon after.

“I had my phone connected to the GoPro’s wifi, so I was watching the footage live from my phone,” says Weber.
