SINGAPORE — It was indeed a monkey business for a dusky langur caught on camera ripping a vehicle’s side mirror to stare at its reflection. The monkey had jumped on top of a parked Honda and examined the items inside the vehicle before selecting a souvenir.

Facebook user Maggie Lim photographed the incident and shared it on the Wildlife of Central Catchment Nature Reserve page. She noted that the crepuscular langur sighting also attracted several curious people.
