Camera phone lovers be warned: Monkeys are out to get you. But don't worry, the zookeepers at the London Zoo are trying to train the monkeys to stop stealing phones.
Light-fingered monkeys unable to resist the bright lights and bleeps of mobile phones have been taught not to steal.
Previously, squirrel monkeys in London Zoo's new barrier-free enclosure were tempted to take visitors' phones.
But since staff covered unwanted phones in an unpleasant sticky substance, the animals were soon put off and gave up their bad habits.
