Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
A band of monkeys clambering across telephone wires between houses left a family baffled.
Filming in snow-covered Mutsu, Japan, a homeowner was stunned when a group of at least six Japanese macaques climbed up a telephone mast on January 6.
Clinging on to the top wire the mischief makers swiftly step along the bottom wire like talented highline walkers.
Just two days later, two of the monkeys returned and completed the same trick, traversing the phone cables on January 8 in apparent bid to keep their feet dry and warm.
'I came line from my mother that a horde of monkeys appeared at my parents,' said the poster of the original video.
The extraordinary video has been viewed an incredible 1.06 million times while the follow up video has been viewed over a quarter of a million times.

The man who uploaded the video said his smartphone had been 'buzzing' due to the thousands of re-tweets.
His mother told NHK News that monkeys occasionally could be seen in the area, but it was the first time she saw this many at once.
Replying to a comment about the wires being electrified and dangerous, the poster replied: 'I'll tell the monkeys'.
Mutsu is a city located in Aomori Prefecture, Japan.
At the time of writing, the temperature there is two degrees below zero, so the monkeys may take to the highline yet again.
