Kayaker shares video of monkeys doing cannonballs at Silver Springs
MARION COUNTY, Fla. - A kayaker shared a video from Oct. 29 of a group of monkeys jumping into the Silver River at Silver Springs State Park. Rod Guynn said he was told other kayakers on the river were seeing monkeys in the trees. Guynn said he never saw a group of 20 monkeys at once. Guynn said the monkeys were jumping off tree limbs because an aggressive monkey was barking at them. He said he thinks the monkeys were systemically moving the group across the river.
