Jan. 4 (UPI) -- A tourist filming his walk through a garden in Nicaragua captured the moment a monkey lunged at him and tried to take his camera.

The video shows the filmer walking through the garden when he captures the attention of a nearby white-headed capuchin monkey.


The monkey lunges at the man and attempts to grab his camera.

The primate manages to hold on for a moment, but the man is able to free his camera from its grip.

"While walking through a friend's garden in Nicaragua, a white headed capuchin monkey takes a shot at me," the man wrote.
