(Scroll down for video) Monkeys attract lots of visitors, and their clever antics make everyone smile.

Young and old enjoy being around monkeys, and one man decided to record himself feeding monkeys.

During a visit to the Uluwatu Temple in Bali, Indonesia, a man, who goes by the name of Mochilao.TV on Youtube, began feeding the monkeys. Rather than going for the treat, the monkey grabbed his $400 camera. “I had the bright idea to shoot with my GoPro camera.

Suddenly, many monkeys came close to me and within seconds, my camera was stolen by the little monkey,” Mochilao.TV said.

The monkey took the camera into the forest, set the camera down and poked his face in front of the camera, taking a selfie. The man was heard on video telling people that the monkey took his camera.

Surprisingly, the monkey managed to open the GoPro protective case and remove the battery. After a few minutes, a sweet woman who works in the temple, ​managed to persuade the Monkey to trade the camera for some fruits.

“I lost the battery, but I got this awesome and unexpected video,” Mochilao.TV said.
