Monkey Truth Problem

There are people and strange monkeys on this island, and you can not tell who is who (Edit: untill you understand what they said - see below). They speak either only the truth or only lies.
Who are the following two guys?
A: B is a lying monkey. I am human.
B: A is telling the truth.

  1. If A is a liar(which is the case here) then either first statement could be false or second statement could be false or both could be false. So your conclusion then A is lying monkey assumes that both statements are false and neglects the possibility of first statement being false and second being true. If later is the case, then A is a lying human.
