MARION COUNTY, Fla. – A kayaker shared a video from Oct. 29 of a group of monkeys jumping into the Silver River at Silver Springs State Park.

Rod Guynn said he was told other kayakers on the river were seeing monkeys in the trees.

“Normally, you’ll see, in the trees or in the banks, you’ll see a few. If you counted the monkeys you see, you’ll see two to 10. I haven’t normally seen a really large number together,” he said.

Guynn said he never saw a group of 20 monkeys at once.

He said he started to hear loud smacking noises in the water.
