A troop of monkeys was spotted near the west entrance of Coney Island at about 10.30am on Apr 4.

Stomper Casey was cycling on the said island, which is a 133-hectare island located off the northeastern coast of Singapore within the town of Punggol, when he caught sight of the monkeys.

He said: "There were about nine monkeys, and they were eating and playing around, eating leaves from trees mostly.

"That was the first time I saw so many monkeys in one place, I was really entertained.

"They were also not aggressive and were just doing their own thing."

Casey also added that it was pretty delightful to be able to see Singapore in a new light.

"It shows us another side of Singapore, the nature part, not just at the Zoo but also in other parts of the country."
