The Silly Monkey Ball is a craftable Item in the Shipwrecked DLC. It is found in the Survival Tab, requires 2 Snakeskin, 2 Rope and a Banana to craft, and a Science Machine to prototype. Silly Monkey Balls can be used to distract Prime Apes.

When used, Prime Apes in the area will focus on the Silly Monkey Ball, and will no longer chase the player if they were aggressive, nor will they pick up items in the area until the Silly Monkey Ball is gone.
