‘Handsy’ monkey goes wild on former Miss Peru Paula Manzanal in Bali

It’s hardly a trip to Bali without a monkey run-in, but an incident with a Peruvian mannequin proves just how cheeky local primates can be.

Footage of a monkey trying to pull down 28-year-old former Miss Peru Paula Manzanal’s strapless top has recently gone viral.

While posing with a monkey in the Monkey Forest of Ubud on the Indonesian island, a cheeky long-tailed macaque is filmed trying to bring down the top of Manzanal.

As his attempt to expose the model’s breast fails, the monkey then resorts to violence, hissing and slapping Manzanal in the face before the video is cut short.

The video went viral.

“I just didn’t want it to affect me,” she captioned the social media video, translated from Spanish.

Manzanal’s 2.1 million TikTok followers shared their concern for the model.

“Be thankful he didn’t bite you,” exclaimed one follower.

“It could hurt your eyes, be very careful with small animals; they are afraid and react like that. Hope you are doing well, ”wrote another.

“I think his little fingernail got caught, and he must have thought they wanted to tie him up, and he got scared,” another wrote.

Many others have seen that the fun side is the interspecies dispute,

“I didn’t want to laugh but it made me laugh; the good thing is he didn’t bite you,” one follower wrote.

“He really knew what he was doing,” wrote another.

“Thank you little monkey on behalf of all the followers,” another daring follower wrote.

Ubud Monkey Forest – also known as the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal – is home to over 700 gray long-tailed macaques.

The park monkeys are generally considered friendly, but are well known to bite or scratch if provoked or attracted to food – especially mother monkeys with babies.
