A troupe of crab-eating macaques has emerged from Surat Thani's Khun Talay mangrove forest and forged a bond with kind-hearted locals who are feeding them vegetables and fruits.

Local residents say that although the monkeys are not pets, they show the same friendliness towards humans as dogs and cats.

Human residents are taking advantage of Surat Thani’s rambutan season to serve up a daily banquet for the macaques. And as the coronavirus lockdown eases, the crab-eating monkeys can look forward to feasting on a wider variety of delicious fruits.
