Smile, you’re on camera!

A curious macaque discovered a new, very expensive toy when he came across a photographer in Indonesia’s Tangkoko National Park.

After David Slater encountered this friendly monkey, the animal took to exploring his new find – and started snapping!

The crested black macaque wasn’t able to see his own photos, but he had enough fun with the click of the camera to let out a grin!
