This is the remarkable monkey born without any feet - which has learned to roam around UPSIDE-DOWN using its front legs.

The acrobatic primate was spotted on the perimeter wall of a hotel in Kenya's second-largest city, Mombasa, and was filmed by one of the hotel guests.

Doctor Ombui Davis, who was staying at Travellers Beach Hotel for a conference, said he suspected the monkey had a congenital defect that meant it was born without feet.

The doctor, from Nairobi, said: "I was surprised to see it moving at all.
