    Deep Forest has a tree with a Monkey in it. It's still there in GT5 according to the first post.

    /edit. Trial Mountain, not Deep Forest...

    Sorry I meant Trial Mountain, not Deep Forest. I'll edit my post. I don't have any pictures myself but I'm sure Google images must have some from GT4

    Yep. It's been there in all the GTs (not sure about GT1, actually). In GT4 you could only see it in replays. In GT5 it is visible during races. Look up at the tree that looks like it is falling over the track.

    Take a picture of the Monkey, there is a Trophy connected to it. Seems this was wrong information
    Some other pictures of a Man and a Girl in Photomode also have a Trophy.

    maybe because the track was ported from GT4 so everything is the same?

    I understand it is a tradition to have the monkey in there but dang they could have at least updated the graphics. Looks like they copied it directly from GT3. :yuck:

    Look for the fisherman in the boat (easy to find) and Ogopogo (somewhat hidden) too in Trial Mountain.

    I did not know about this monkey. That is so awesome!!

    On that note, I have pondered hiding things in the images that I photoshop from Photomode. I won't hide anything in the images straight from Photomode, but if I shop any, I think I'll hide things in there. I did it in some matte paintings I did for school. it's lots of fun!

    It's just a standard monkey, not a premium.

    I still remember when the first Gran Turismo was out, and the rumor amongst friends were that there was a bigfoot sighting. Of course, it was just a monkey on the tree, but graphics were so bad back then, we could barely tell a monkey-like figure on the tree branch. I was very please to see it still there! :lol:
