A video posted to the Internet late last month shows a monkey steal a GoPro camera from a man who had just set it down so he could record himself feeding the animals.

“I was going to feed the monkeys with fruits and had the brilliant idea to shoot it with my GoPro,” the individual explains in the YouTube description. “Suddenly, many monkeys start to approach and in a matter of second my camera was robbed by the little monkey.”

“I was shocked when he managed to open the GoPro case and even removed the battery,” he continues. “After few minutes of panic a sweet lady who works in the temple made a ‘deal’ with Mr. Monkey and trade my camera for some fruits. I lost the battery but got this awesome and unexpected video.”

The video was tweeted out by GoPro’s official account Saturday night. It had acquired just over 5,000 views on YouTube at the time of publication.
