Forget the apes, these agile snow monkeys might be signaling our downfall instead. While in Jigokudani Monkey Park, Dutch photographer Marsel van Oosten caught the sight of a snow monkey making off with a tourist’s phone, going back into the hot spring with it, where it then started to tinker around with it and even made the in-built camera flash go off. Eventually the phone found its way back to the humans, but unfortunately stopped working by then.
