Netizens loved the video and the fact that animals are much more sensible than humans is the common consensus. “Monkeys are more sensible and responsible than human,” a user said while another comment read: “Am still wondering how a monkey realised to save water and learnt to handle a tap.”

Another user tweeted: “Animal behavior is way better than human creatures.” Also, folks are impressed with the fact that monkeys are aware of water conservation as opposed to humans. “The monkey shuts the tap to avoid wastage of water. Sadly, several human beings don’t value the preciousness of water and waste it by not caring to close taps. Beautiful message indeed,” said another user.
