Once again, a troupe of monkeys have proven that you don’t need opposable thumbs to take a good selfie.

We can’t resist curious animals and GoPros. And neither can Alex Braczkowski, a cameraman and wildlife biologist who captured several jolly toque macaque monkeys when he set up a GoPro in Sri Lanka’s Gem River.

The delightful troupe was eager to take selfies, finding their light and posing strong in photos that would make even Kim Kardashian jealous.

Anything humans can do, monkeys can do cuter.
