Rare view - Monkey spotted washing and eating a bird in the Sundarbans

3 months ago10 views

In the mangrove swamps of the Sunderbans in India, these macaques actually bring a bird to the water's edge, in order to wash it and eat it. Who has heard of a macaque practising hygiene? How many animals actually wash and then eat their food?

Monkeys forage and gather around a river for food such as molluscs, crabs, fish etc.

The Sundarbans is the largest single block of tidal halophytic mangrove forest in the world. The Sundarbans is a UNESCO World Heritage Site covering parts of Khulna, Satkhira and Bagerhat District in southwestern Bangladesh.
