Man ‘finds’ monkey selfies on lost phone
A Malaysian man who lost his phone found selfies and videos of a monkey he believes briefly stole the device after retrieving it from the jungle behind his house.
Zackrydz Rodzi, a student in Batu Pahat, Malaysia, woke up on Saturday to find his mobile phone missing. He finally located it the following day after hearing it ring in a jungle area behind his home. Zackrydz’s uncle joked that perhaps there was a photo of the thief on the phone. Turns out, he was right.
Unlike some parts of the world where monkeys live in or near urban areas, there is no history of monkeys stealing things from houses in the local neighbourhood, said the student. He suspects the monkey may have entered the house through his brother’s open bedroom window.
Videos and images of a monkey on the camera roll Mr Zackrydz shared on social media have gone viral.

There are also a string of blurry images of the jungle foliage as well as a failed attempt to produce a panoramic image.
