May 25 (UPI) -- A visitor to a public pool in India captured video of an unusual fellow regular -- a wild monkey that frequently shows up for a swim.

A guest at the Chatrapati Shahu Maharaj swimming pool in Pune, Maharashtra, shared video of the wild monkey swimming laps in the pool to beat the May heat.

The video shows the monkey swimming, surfing atop a float and relaxing poolside while drying its fur.

Regulars said the monkey is often seen walking to the pool once crowds have thinned out for the day.

"The monkey usually comes to swim when the crowd is thin. No one minds it as it keeps to its own," said Niranjan Poddar, a regular visitor to the pool.

"It was spotted last year also," he said.
