Godzilla ‘world fattest monkey’ DIES – he was killed with kindness as he was always fed with junks and chocolate


Godzilla – the vest-wearing obese monkey who gorged on chocolate and junk food – has passed away.

Cause of Death

The ‘world fattest monkey’ suffered a myriad of weight-related illnesses before his death at the Crystal Pet Hospital in Thailand on May 6.

Wildlife officials have accused the family of killing the monkey with kindness, feeding him junk food whenever he wanted and allowing him to become a tourist attraction at their Bangkok market stall.

The famous primate was taken from the market three years ago as officials worried about his health, and placed him into a ‘fat camp’, where he was put on a rigorous diet.

Godzilla’s Weight

Godzilla had weighed 19kg (41.9 lbs) – nearly double the standard weight of normal macaques – before he was rescued from a market in Bangkok in 2021.

But it was too late to save Godzilla. In his dying days, he was reunited with his owner as he lay in hospital, who cared for him in his final days.

He Was Only 6 Years Old

Godzilla was just six years old, a fraction of the life expectancy for his species, which can live up to 37 years in captivity. 

The hospital’s director, Dr Supasek Sarachitti, said Godzilla had thyroid disease, diabetes, and Cushing’s syndrome or overproduction of the stress hormone cortisol, all of which contributed to his shortened lifespan.

The family were first banned from seeing Godzilla while he recovered but later granted visitation rights due to their perseverance to see him. His condition never improved.

His bloated body has been cremated and returned to his previous caretaker Manop Emsan, from whom he was seized three years ago.
