It's Grooming Time: Monkey is Busy Cleaning Its Buddy's Hair

Why do monkeys often clean each other? Grooming, or the act of tidying oneself or another, is seen in all primates, it is considered an important social activity through which animals strengthen their family bonds.

A video has been shared on Instagram recently, showing two grey monkeys going through their grooming routine. 

Surrounded by a group of onlookers, the monkeys look very serious as they are busy with their ritual. 

The one that is being groomed lies in a very peculiar position so that the 'groomer' monkey has access to its private parts.

The scene cannot but evoke a smile and even laughter but for these monkeys, it is no laughing matter.
