It's the monkeys that you want to be worried about.
The Safari park at Longleat (the first in the developed world) features a drive through a number of enclosures. A by-pass is provided for the monkey enclosure, although most seem to risk it.
These devilish little primates are very skilled at ripping bits off the passing vehicles. If you have a slippery modern saloon (I especially recommend the 3-series saloon), you may well escape. On makes where and rubber or spare wheels are exposed - then you enter at your own risk....and cost.
At one point we had eight monkeys on our car. One tried to make a snatch for the windscreen wipers, but a swift acceleration (forbidden) and emergency brake (forbidden as well) it sorted the little bugger out.
As we were leaving the enclosure, we saw one monkey sat on a log inspecting his trawl for the day - he had got hold of a fuel filler cap !
I just hope they never work out how to use a screwdriver - it will bankrupt Longleat !
The picture used comes from a few years back where during a forced period of quarantine they got a bit bored. They gave them an old car to 'play' (or rather practice on) with.
If you drive a a Citreon, I would suggest using the 'by-pass', the monkeys will leave you with nothing more than the chassis after about three minutes work !
