Monkeys turn stream into swimming pool

A stream at the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park has become a swimming pool for monkeys as they play and swim in water to cool off in the summer heat in Hunan province. 

On August 6 at Jinbian stream of the park, some macaques swam breast stroke, some jumped into water from branches or stones just like swimmers and some scooped up water to quench their thirst.

There were also mother macaques bringing their children into the stream to have fun, presenting harmonious pictures which attracted tourists to take photos of them.

"The macaques are so adorable. I like them so much," a foreign tourist said.
