Monkeys in a Finnish zoo prefer traffic sounds instead of the noises of the jungle.

According television channel Sky News, a number of researchers conducted an experiment to conclude it.

They installed a tunnel fitted with sensors in the enclosure of the monkeys at Helsinki’s Korkeasaari Zoo.

It gave the primates the chance to choose to listen to the sounds of rain, traffic, zen sound or dance music.

The soundtrack of vehicles rumbling past proved overwhelmingly the most popular choice for the animals.

They slept or groomed themselves inside the sound tunnel, which they did not do for any of the other sounds.

“We thought they would enjoy more calming sounds but actually they triggered the traffic sounds more,” said the researchers.

In another story related to the primates, a man discovered a series of monkey “selfies” on the phone he lost.

According to reports, Malaysian Zackrydz Rodzi went to sleep with his phone next to him.

When he woke up the next day, the 20-year-old then realized that it was missing.

The man eventually decided to track the lost device in the woods near the house where he stays.
