Watch: Monkey family exchanges love with human-like hugs, internet finds

In a video shared by Indian Forest Service officer Susanta Nanda, two matured monkeys can be seen meeting each other. Both the monkeys are carrying infants on their backs and when they meet, one takes an infant from the other. They go on hugging and the affection is so evident that it can prove to end a long wait.

The monkeys have also been seen making some lip-smacking gestures. Primate Rescue Centre has confirmed that lip-smacking is a very common social behaviour among monkeys. They do it to show their love and friendship while interacting in a group.
