Watch: Monkey Spotted Flying a Kite

By Tim Binnall

A bizarre piece of footage from India shows a monkey perched atop a building and flying a kite! The very weird video was posted to Twitter on Wednesday by Susanta Nanda of the Indian Forest Service. "Evolution happening fast due to lockdown," he joked, referencing the country's coronavirus quarantine and assuring his followers "yes, it's a monkey for sure."

In the footage, the diminutive creature sits on the roof of a building and pulls on a string attached to a kite that is flying in the air overhead. Residents of the unidentified city where the scene took place can be head cheering on the monkey as it plays with the toy. Upon being posted online, the video quickly went viral on social media in India with many viewers comparing the creature's antics to the Planet of the Apes film series.
