Selfies and videos of monkeys on your camera roll? Sounds interesting right? The tweets of the Malaysian boy with photos of a monkey on his phone went viral in a few minutes.

A Malaysian student, Zackrydz Rodzi aged 20 found his phone filled with selfies of monkeys, pictures of trees and mud, and few other videos. Rodzi, final year computer science student from Batu Pahat in the southern state of Johor was surprised to see a series of monkey selfies on his phone that he had lost. 

He said that he had his phone next to him when he went to sleep that night. When he woke up he found that his phone was not there anymore. His father reportedly spotted a monkey near their house the day before. But it remains unclear exactly how the mobile went missing. His father called his number and traced the phone to a jungle behind their house. 

Rodzi told the BBC he realized that his smartphone was gone when he woke up at around 11 am on Saturday and that there was no sign of robbery. “The only thing on my mind was is it some kind of sorcery" he added. It was quite impossible to verify the circumstances in which the photos and videos ended up on his phone.

Time-coded 2.01 pm that same day, a monkey appeared to be trying to eat the phone in a video that was captured on his phone and which was shared with the BBC. The monkey was seen staring down the camera against a backdrop of bright green leaves and crowing birds. There were a series of photos of the monkey, bright green forest, leaves, and few birds which were out of focus.

His phone was found beneath a palm tree that was covered in mud. His father constantly kept calling until they found it. His uncle joked that maybe there was a photo of the thief on the phone. So after cleaning the phone, he went through the camera roll and surprisingly found photos of the real thief, the monkey. 

Rodzi tweeted on Sunday the photos along with the caption “Something that you might see once in a century".
