Come back 'ere! Mother monkey teaches misbehaving baby a lesson as she grabs him by the tail

By Daily Mail Reporter

This is the moment a cheeky little monkey got put in his place by his mother.

The baby macaque received short shrift from his tired looking parent when he tried to run away from her - but ended up being yanked back by his tail.

The youngster had been playing for hours when she decided it was time to go home - but her little one wanted to go back to his friends.

Amateur photographer Alex Saberi, 35, captured the hilarious moment on camera while watching the long tailed macaques playing in the street while on holiday in Java, Indonesia, last month.

Alex, from Putney, London, said: 'I had been hanging around for around an hour watching all the monkeys playing, fighting and grooming one another.

'There were quite a few youngsters there, and they were jumping about everywhere and play fighting.

'His mum was too quick for him though, and managed to grab him just in time before he got away.

'I always loved monkeys as a child, and I still love watching them now.

'I think their similarities with humans are really funny, and their expressions and naughty behaviour makes me laugh.

'I'm now planning on putting together a photography book on monkeys and apes around the world.'
