Man with Onion Attracts Monkeys

Occurred on May 2022 / Misahualli, Ecuador

Info from Licensor: "There is a park in Misahualli, Ecuador, that is frequented by a troupe of Capuchin monkeys. The alpha, Lightermonkey, became famous last year (22 million views on TikTok) for stealing lighters and using them to cook bugs. This video features another extraordinary behavior exhibited by the same troupe: superstition. The monkeys apply onion to their bodies as a natural bug repellent. The odd part is that they always take the onions to a human lap in order to apply them. Is it monkey superstition?"
