Monkeying Around: Gorilla Invites You To Travel Uganda, Tinder For Orangutans and More

The tourism industry seems to be 'monkeying around' to boost domestic and foreign visitors in their countries. We have the latest scoop in the animal kingdom and how it can help tourists appreciate both the countries' sceneries and the monkeys roaming there.

To further boost Uganda's tourism sector, a stunt organized by the country's tourism board sent out a "gorilla" in the streets of London much to the amazement of tourists and passersby. Almost 50 percent of the world's gorillas are found in the mountains of Uganda.

But, before anyone can shout, "bananas!" the monkey was just a man in disguise. The Board called on Londoners to visit their country and observe gorillas in their natural habitats.

Meanwhile, people visiting Apenheul Primate Park in the Netherlands should see female orangutans choose their mates in a mobile dating app for monkeys, dubbed as "Tinder for orangutans." One orangutan in the zoo, Samboja, should choose her mate from the great ape breeding program with a touchscreen.

Vets and zoologists can finally understand how the apes choose their mates with the help of apps. Most of the other orangutans live far away, and it'll be a hassle for them to travel and suddenly turn down the ape scientists chose for them.

If you've come across the Snow Monkey Park in the Jigokudani Yaen-koen facilityof Japan, you'll see macaques, snow monkeys, bathe in the hot springs of the park to heat themselves up due to the extremely cold climate. People can take photos of the monkey bathing in the park. Admissions to the place cost 500 Yen for the adults and 250 Yen for children.

Outrage was what the people get when a man in Mandore Gardens in India when he slapped a monkey so hard that it fell. The man with his friends was seen laughing when they hit the animal and ran away. The public is in search for the man who has caused so much pain to the animal. Visitors are reminded daily that no harm should be given to the animals at the zoo.
