    I can't figure out what rifle the soldier is using.I appears to be a Galil. I also wonder where the "passenger" on the barrel came from. It appears to be a macaque of some kind. I assume this is from Israel. [​IMG] Maybe this is a soldier's pet.

    Obviously a sufficient response to a "monkey dance"..

    He fires that Galil w/ barrel monkey sitting there and that monkey will certainly be dancing.

    At first glance I thought that the monkey would make it as a top appointee for the US Internal Revenue Service.
    At least we can believe that the monkey actually knows nothing when called to Testify before Congress.

    I can't see the pic, but there are no monkeys in Israel, other than in zoos.

    Yep, obviously a Galil variant, but could be a South African R4 variant.......http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R4_assault_rifle
    that might explain the presence of the monkey, but the soldier is pretty light skinned, so who knows....

    I just took Anthropology 101 and got a B. That looks like a "platyrrhine", or New World monkey. So I'm gonna guess that's a Nicaraguan, Sandinista, or some other banana republic soldier.

    That's a squirrel monkey, a new world primate. Galil variants are used all over central / south America, so this could be Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, El Salvador, who knows? Id of the camo pattern on the uniform might help.

    First there was the Trunk Monkey. Effective, but only at short range. Now we have the Galil monkey! He's good out to 400 yards.

    Actually that's a brass catcher for the Galil, the monkey immediatly jumps off of the barrel to pick up brass and stuffs it in the soldier's pockets :p Very High-Tech!
