Monkey dropping and collecting coconuts in Phuket, Thailand

 
This 30 years old makaki has been working together with it's owner for 4 years. It's work is to climb to coconut trees, select riped coconuts and drop those down to be collected by it's keeper.
 
The keeper also shouts advices, which coconuts are ready to be collected. The monkey then spins the coconut until the cord snaps.
