Chinese people receive red envelopes from elders during the Spring Festival or grab virtual red envelope on their smartphones. Now monkeys in a Chongqing zoo also enjoy the joy of receiving red envelopes.
On the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, breeders at Chongqing Leheledu wildlife park put monkeys' favorite food into red envelopes as a kind of blessing to the squirrel monkeys and ring-tailed lemurs.
Seduced by delicious food, every monkey wanted to have a red envelope and began to scramble for red envelopes.
