The Monkey Cave (タライ・ジャブの穴, lit. "Hole of Tarai Jab"), are a series of caves in EarthBound, found in the western portion of the Dusty Dunes Desert. As implied by the name, the area is full of monkeys. The monkeys, including Monkonna, block paths that lead to items and/or the path to Talah Rama; they will only move if they are given the food item they request (excluding the Skip Sandwich and the Picnic Lunch, which are required to enter, the food can be found in gift boxes littered throughout the caves, so there is no need to leave to purchase all of the items). After finding Talah Rama, a monkey will teach Ness the secret of PSI Teleport.
