SINGAPORE - In today's tight security climate, the airport is no place for monkey business.

However, it appears that one furry little creature did not get the message.

Several videos circulating on social media on Monday (Oct 29) showed a monkey roaming around the check-in area at Changi Airport Terminal 3's departure hall.

Videos of the monkey were uploaded to Facebook on Monday. In one clip, the monkey is seen on a high structure making its way towards a leaf-covered wall in the terminal.
