A cheeky macaque decided to 'monkey around' with a shocked female tourist when she visited its forest sanctuary in Bali, Indonesia.
Jill Porter, 38, sat stock-still as the inquisitive primate clambered onto her lap and started trying to undo her shorts.
The Balinese long-tailed monkey then plucked up the courage to peer down her top, and even tugged at her hair.  
Jill said she was 'terrified' at first, before admitting: 'I think the monkeys were possibly hungry and just looking for food'.

In the 23-second clip Jill can be seen sitting on a wooden bench and looking worriedly at the primate nestling on her lap.
A friend in the background can be heard falling about in a fit of giggles and exclaiming: 'I'm dying!' 
Jill had gone on holiday with a group of friends to Bali from her home in Castlerock, Northern Ireland, when she had the encounter.
She revealed feeling 'quite scared' about the approach but followed the park's advice. 
'You are warned to remain calm if they approach you, but I was quite shocked,' she said.

The 12.5-hectare Ubud Monkey Forest is home to around 700 primates, heralding from a massive 186 different species.
However, the coronavirus crisis in Indonesia has forced the site to close. A date for its reopening has not been released.
The country has so far recorded 68,079 cases of the virus, and 3,359 deaths.
The clip was filmed in November last year.
