By 6am the sun was hot and the sky a blaze. If you listened carefully though the sounds of the birds one could begin to hear the swoosh-swoosh of the money troop moving through the tree tops. Eventually, they came to a place where they had to make these big jumps from tree to tree. Sometimes it was as much as 30 feet across with more than a 20 foot drop.
The monkeys, one by one, would get on the same branch, rock back and forth to gain momentum (sometimes with their hands holding on to the branch) and then launch!
