Our friend is back but in a nice way

After using some tactics we have seen to it that this little fellow is not seen around the house. He is now on top of trees which is fine for us. Today I saw him right on top of our jack fruit tree. I marvelled at the way he would get to the fruit, hold it with both his hands standing at a distance so that he could get the grip and peal it off with his teeth. He would then collect enough in his hands squat there and finish them and then come for a second helping.

I am ever grateful to my camera which has a zoom feature which helped me capture this activity without having to worry about him getting at me. It was a joy watching him in action.

I was in a way happy as we have far too many jack fruits and many of them get into the compost pit. This way a hungry animal gets to eat it.

You can watch him in actioin. We have named him Charlie

I din't know those jack fruits were just as large as they are. They certainly look like they would provide plenty of nourishment for a monkey.

He will come again. I can hear his announcement already. Yes. They are big enough to feed him for the day.

I had never heard of jack fruits, and I didn't expect them to be so large in contrast to the monkey. I'm amazed he could handle them. I'm sharing this one.

We have 4 jack fruit trees, laden with fruit. Yes. Jack fruits are huge. Thanks for sharing.

He drops the seeds one by one. We can hear that gentle sound (lol)

That video was beautiful to watch. Either those fruit are huge or he is a tiny fellow?

Good to see you. He is tiny but those fruits are huge too.
