The young long-tailed macaque suffered caffeine overdose after it imitated a human drinking coffee.

We thought that drinking coffee will keep you awake. Coffee has caffeine, which alerts the receptors in the brain keeping us awake. However, like any other substance, one can suffer an overdose. For humans with higher tolerance, high levels of caffeine may cause faster palpitations of the heart.

According to the locals, the monkey saw a human drinking coffee and copied him. It drank the coffee left unattended on a tourist motorcycle and suddenly fell unconscious in front of the onlooking tourists. The primate was brought to the nearby animal clinic for treatment.
