This adorable video, taken earlier this year at the International Primate Rescue (IPR) sanctuary in South Africa shows Chino the capuchin monkey communicating with YouTube user Louise Smith.

Chino was sold into the pet trade as an infant. His owner realized very quickly that Chino would be better off at IPR and he arrived at the sanctuary in 2010 when he was just six weeks old. IPR currently cares for over 100 primates, including Marmosets, Tamarins, Capuchins, Macaques, Squirrel Monkeys, Mona Monkeys and Grey Mouse Lemurs. Many are hand reared ex-pets who arrive with behavioral problems and require rehabilitation from psychological disorders.

Chino seems to really be into the sound of crunching leaves, and judging from this video, he wants to share his passion and enthusiasm with us humans.

OMG he's so adorable; I can understand why people are tempted to capture them to live with them. But, of course, it's so much nicer to let these animals live naturally where they can live on their own... without "owners". <3
