St. Petersburg resident shares photo from her Mystery Monkey sighting



Monkey 2

Rebecca Johns of St. Petersburg shared a photo today from her Mystery Monkey sighting on March 12. "The monkey was in our back yard, eating fruit and conducting his monkey business," Johns wrote.


Tampa Bay's favorite monkey gets his own theme song: You've seen the monkey on national TV. You've become one of the 73,000 fans of the monkey's Facebook page.

Now you can boogie along to the song, "Doin' the Mystery Monkey," released by country recording artists Noah and Jesse Bellamy. The song was launched earlier this month, along with a YouTube video featuring footage.

Rick Coffey spotted Tampa Bay's Mystery Monkey taking bird seed from the feeder in his back yard on Serpentine Dr. S. in St. Petersburg on April 10. The monkey was scared off by his cat but came back about an hour later for more food and Coffey was waiting with his video camera.
