Saint Kitts and the Drunk Monkeys

Saint Kitts and the neighbouring island of Nevisconstitute one country: the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis. The island is one of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles. It is situated about 2,100 km (1,300 mi) southeast of Miami, Florida. The land area of St. Kitts is about 168 km2 (65 sq mi), being approximately 29 km (18 mi) long and on average about 8 km (5.0 mi) across.

                

Landscape, nature, sea etc...everything about this island could be definite beautiful, but there is something more. On the Caribbean island of St. Kitt’s, alcoholic monkeys roam the beaches waiting for vacationers to leave their drinks. Yes on this island monkeys are used to drink cocktail.
When they spotted a drink that had been left unguarded or unfinished, the monkeys would sneak down from the trees, jump on the tables and start drinking. They were tasting the drinks to see which ones they liked.

A controversial research project that involves giving alcohol to 1,000 green vervet monkeys has found that the animals divide into four main categories: binge drinker, steady drinker, social drinker and teetotaller.
