A mischievous gibbon ended up in a prickly situation after finding its way into a porcupine enclosure at a zoo - before deliberately provoking it to attack.
Businessman Riska Rijayanti, 26, who captured the moment, said the animals had been messing with one another for around 15 minutes prior to recording.
The long-limbed monkey is seen moving towards a pair of porcupines at the zoo, in Indonesia's Bandungand, then targets one and hits it.
The gibbon then sits back waiting for a reaction - but gets nothing and then attacks again.
The porcupine then goes on the offensive and chases the gibbon across the enclosure before it scampers up a tree to evade the spiky threat.
The video was filmed on Sunday, July 24.
