A monkey expert in China revealed that one of his biggest secrets to being a great trainer is that his wife breastfeeds his apes.
Jiao Xinzhen, the man’s wife, explained the bizarre method during interviews to promote her husband Huang Aiqing‘s monkey school in the city of Nanyang in the Henan province.
The 34-year-old Huang has become one of the region’s top monkey trainers, and is known for supplying young apes to street performers, as well as to work in movies, circuses, and theaters.
“Many times, some of the baby monkeys slip onto our bed at night to suck my breasts,” said the 27-year-old Jian.
“I feel they are just like my children,” she added.
The couple has even adopted one monkey as a second child and playmate for their son Ti.
“In this house, the monkeys are king,” said Huang.
“When I see him playing with my son I can see how close we are to them and they are to us and I’m pleased my boy has such a good playmate,” he added.
