China opens performing school for monkeys
This most unusual entertainment school was opened by a Chinese zoo in Dongying, Shandong province on September 24, 2015.
The Yellow River Delta Zoo recruited 30 snow monkeys to study at its ‘Macaques Performing School’.
These monkeys are learning tricks like shaking hands, walking on stilts, salutes and mathematics.
They receive daily ‘academic’ as well as physical training at the school, aimed at helping them learn some basic math operations and somersaults.
Upon completion of training, they will be sent around China to enter into the entertainment industry.
