OK, we’re calling it: the selfie is over. The next big thing is the selfie-gone-oh-so-very-wrong.

As demonstrated absolutely perfectly in this sequence of pictures of a tourist attempting to capture herself and a monkey in the same frame.

Believed to be taken in the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud, Bali, it was shared by Reddit user ThatGuy1331 over the weekend.

Selfie time!

Conversation about the images ranged from branding the monkey in question "a complete asshole", to arguing over whether a human could fight off a simian attack to advice "never to show your teeth to most animals. It's a sign of aggression".

Wonderful stuff.
