(RNN) - A family in Florida was attacked by a group of wild monkeys, and it was all captured on video.

It happened during their visit to Silver Springs State Park in Ocala, FL, last week. The video, posted on YouTube, first shows the rhesus monkeys just sitting around.

But then they got angry and started growling, hissing and eventually chasing the family.

"Oh my God, the monkeys are attacking," shouted the boy who took the video, who seemed to think it was all fun and games.

But those monkeys have sharp fangs and can seriously hurt humans. 

They don't know how lucky they are.
