And now, a nice little image before you go to bed tonight


Love the teef.


Katherine T., nice bebeh zoo animal collectshe.



  1. Yikes! That is a kinda scary baby zoo animal. I don’t know exactly why, but that is a disturbing picture. Shiver.

  2. Margaret says:

    Why you gotta treat me so bad, C.O.? I am going to have nightmares about this little guy devouring my soul.

  3. Isn’t that a scene out of 28 days later?

  4. HE’s all I is hanging at the window wanting to eat your Bananas!

    Please Let ME In.. Pretty Please!

  5. Yeesh! I no like monkeys 😛

  6. my first reaction to this picture was “aw” — but after staring at it for about a minute, I’m kind of creeped out… It makes me nervous in an “I’m trying to eat your soul” way.

  7. R. Moore says:

    Nightmares for weeks, Meg. Nightmares for weeks.

  8. That scared the freaking s*** out of me. Gah!

  9. I iz like peepol?

  10. Okay … he ot away with it only because he’s a bebeh!

  11. Er, that was “got.”

  12. WAHHHOMG says:


  13. holy crap, meg!!

    i’m at the end of a very long night shift at the moment mmm-kay? so i’m feeling a taaaad fragile, mmm-kay? and this little fella gave me a near HEART ATTACK!!!

    scary, scary monkey, that one…. phew!

  14. holy crap, meg!!

    i’m at the end of a very long night shift at the moment mmm-kay? so i’m feeling a taaaad fragile, mmm-kay? and this little fella gave me a near HEART ATTACK!!!

    scary, scary monkey, that one…. phew!

  15. mmm… how and why did that post twice!?

  16. Shannon says:

    *shudders* why does this creep me out so? Too human?? *shivers*

  17. zosterops says:

    Read the cap,
    prepared for something sweet,
    scrolled down,
    expecting fluffyness

    God, did I laugh my head off!! Thanks Meg, that was a good one.

    Ps: he’s just a bored little ape, playing with the window and his lips. Orang-utans have super sensitive lips and tongues – they can tie knots with them into strings, how cool’s that – so he’s simply fooling around with the smooth surface. Relax people, he wont suck your soul out.

  18. Oh! It’s lovely

  19. redbone says:


  20. Michelle says:

    dawwwww. I love this lil guy. His goofy teefs and the way his lil tongue is mashed on the glass. Baby primates melt my heart. <3

  21. OMG NOT CUTE! That was the scariest thing I’ve seen today. Bad CO. Bad.

  22. *




    ooooooooooooooooo! 😀


  23. starmonkey says:

    Oh My god that is really cute. I want to squeeeezee its ickle checks!!!! But if anyone has been watch Britian Next Top Model….. Its bit freaky but looks like carly!!!

  24. Kids, eh? Tchuh!

    The same everywhere… And still cute, even when playing up for the camera.

  25. stephanie says:

    Wow… you’re really not kidding about the “haunt you in your dreams” part, huh?

  26. …and I probably shouldn’t say this, but this picture *really* reminds me of my sister when she was little.

    (here’s hoping she doesn’t read CO)

  27. He is cute or she is cute either way I waas a laughing till my animals are like what is wrong with you again ?? which of course makes me laugh harder.

  28. delicata77 says:

    This is just horrible.
    Nightmare-inducing horror.

    Christ! I cannot even look at my monitor with this picture on it!!

  29. Ahhhh!!! This little guy has one of the sweetest little faces I’ve ever seen. Makes my jaw hurt for want of snuggling with him…

  30. browngrl says:

    I’m sure this little guy is a great monkey but it scared the heebie geebies out of me. I had to go look at a month’s worth of kittens on Daily Kitten to clear out my brain

  31. What a cutie! He’s just making a face, playing with the keeper taking the photo. Is this Dumadi at Zoo Atlanta?

  32. francesk says:

    Uh, he looks like my nephew.
    Poor kid.

  33. Please, bring back the tick pictures, the dancing otters, make it go away.

    *back to hiding in zombie free closet*

  34. he also looks like my neighbour: “turn the freaking volume down!!!!)

  35. There;s…….something….on the wing….

    where’s shatner when we need him?!?!

  36. hahahhaahhaha….so funny and not scary, people. He’s just a leetle baby.


  38. Argh! I didn’t see this at night but first thing this morning. What a horrible way to start the day! Orangs are incredibly intelligent animals, but that doesn’t mean they’re not creepy as h*ll. I do not like them, Sam I Am.

  39. Emmy – excellent, but as you remember he was taken away for a long rest after that!

  40. Absolute morning belly laugh. Awesome.

    But does anyone else flash to Rob Thomas in your mind’s eye?
    “It’s 3AM, I must be lonely…”

  41. The fuzzy head and those…those…BIG TEETH get me every time I look at this! Too much!

    I wouldn’t mind seeing that out my window every morning. Would start the day out right!

  42. Detroit Snapdragon says:

    Creepy! not cute. not cute at all.

  43. chelonianmobile says:

    “It looked like it had just seen something truly horrifying, but this is a normal expression for baby orangutans and in any case it was looking at the Dean.”

  44. Katherine T. says:

    I’m absolutely offended. To the extreme.


    Youz peoplez obviously have no concept whatsoever of CUTE CURIOSITY. He’s just a baby!

  45. One Eyed Daruma says:

    Does anyone else see Don Cheadle?

    […nope, pretty much just Rob Thomas – Ed.]

  46. Awww! I used to be a keeper at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans and had the very great honor of helping to raise 2 orang babies. They are the BEST! Gorillas too, just melt your heart.

  47. elizabells says:

    Awwwwwwww. I loff heem! C’mere bebeh, I give you many smoos, dun lissen to the meanies who think you’re scary…

  48. birdiebrainz says:

    is he channelling munch’s “the scream”?

  49. Nyah nyah! Too late! I had already gone to bed!

  50. I am SO glad that I didn’t check this right before I went to bed…come on, I thought this was supposed to be CUTEoverload 😛

  51. Yitzysmommie says:

    Francesk, I sure hope your nephew’s Momma doesn’t know your screen name. Thanks for the great guffaw!
    I like babies of all species, but I am glad I didn’t see this until AFTER my morning coffee.

  52. Oh, oobee doo
    I wanna be like you
    I wanna walk like you
    Talk like you, too
    You’ll see it’s true
    An ape like me
    Can learn to be human too

  53. OMG! This is just like a little kid!!! Hahahahaha, I am laughing my butt off.

  54. I love how everyone’s first reaction was so different. Great post, Meg.

  55. Deja Vu!
    see here:

  56. It’s like one of those trash mags “separated at birth” things. LMAO

  57. Gag me. I really don’t like primates of any variety. Please publish more cute animals, so I can get the burn off my retinas.

  58. primates, I mean the monkey variety (apes, gorillas, chimps), not humans! LOL Or lemurs. Lemurs are cute.

  59. Nyxicle says:

    Hysterikals!! Personally I think this is cuter than an human bebeh pig-nosin’ it up against a window. 🙂 Here’s to making window raspberries with the little feller!

  60. chelonianmobile–librarian shoutout!

  61. *snort* Wow! Cute cause it’s a baby animal but TERRIFYING cause it’s the first thing I saw this morning when getting into work.


    I so need to print this picture out and hang it near the entrance to my cube. It’s appropriate.

  62. *smacks self on head*
    Durh how could I not see the Librarian!
    *goes off to punish self by re-reading all books featuring the Librarian*

  63. Would that be an orang utongue?

  64. The bebbeh-oran is thinking: “Has glass a flavr?”

  65. girlnextdoortn says:

    Laughed my freaking arse off. Promptly emailed pic to as many people as I know.

  66. That kid needs braces…..

    and a great big hug!

    Baby Librarians ….. too cute!

  67. Gahahahaha!

    The Librarian, Metz! Good one.

  68. Ooook!

  69. ewwwwwwww that is not cute, someone kill that thing PLEASE!

  70. pongidae says:

    I iz not monkey. I iz ape. You can tell cuz all monkeys=cute, all apes=not cute (including humans)

  71. NOT cute. ugly monkey.

  72. guineapiggin9 says:

    I’m on your grass, lickin your glass!!!

  73. How can ya’ll think that little guy is scary. Il est si adorable!

  74. Methinks this needs another category tag. Fixing now…

  75. actually the credit goes to chelonianmobile & Saranp

  76. He looks like – remember when we were kids, and we’d press our mouths to windows and blow out our cheeks, and our moms would yell and smack us in the head cause we smudged up her clean windows?

    Thats what he looks like he’s doin…

  77. Hehehe, what a cute baby! Typical toddler, everything goes in the mouth/gets licked. Too funny.

    And Brian, yeah, it’s exactly like that! I can just see his mom bein’ all “Dang it child! I just got done cleaning that window! It’s time out for you mister!”

    Man you guys scare easy!

  78. zosterops says:

    Aoife – respect.

  79. that kids gunna need some braces.

  80. oh emmm. That’s uncalled for. 😦 Go ahead and think it isn’t cute, but don’t call for it’s death.

  81. I’m so sad with some of the comments, he’s just a lil’ bebeh, I feel like giving him a big hug!!

  82. Nope, that’s not Dumadi. Their orangutan habitat doesn’t have glass like that, but today was Dumadi’s first day out in the habitat and here’s a cute picture of him:

  83. Cassandra says:

    I love primates most of all, how happy am I to see this cute little guy causing a riot on CO! More baby rangatans please! Or cheemps! (I wanted to be Jane Goodall as a child…still kind of do)

  84. actually i must say i like the orange fluff.

  85. Brian– that’s what I was going to say! You’re totally right!

  86. Scary, definitely, but also cute. The real question is, is it cute in a scary sort of way, or scary in a cute sort of way? I vote the latter.

  87. eeeew! this one’s for the gee-ross category please!

  88. claudia says:

    errr…. no thanks.

  89. Shannon Johnson says:

    What? I like the kitties and puppies and duckies. Seeing the monkey waskinda weird.

  90. My sister sent in this picture! I don’t understand why so many people are saying they’re scared of it, it’s absolutely adorable!!

  91. My sister sent in this picture! I don’t understand why so many people are saying they’re scared of it, it’s absolutely adorable!!

  92. My sister sent in this picture! I don’t understand why so many people are saying they’re scared of it, it’s absolutely adorable!!

  93. Brak_Silverbone says:

    Hey! Who put a mirror on the intarnetz?! 😛

  94. When I scrolled down to this, I laughed out loud.

    My friend likes to say that orangutans are the trailer trash of the primate world. Just thought I’d put that out there.

  95. cubbybutt says:

    preent peecture of bebeh tang-tang
    tape to weendow
    scare away burglars!

  96. “Gross”? “Scary”? What the hell? If he/she is scary then so are puppies, kittens and human babies! What an adorable little baby! Just a goofy playful child! Those big bright eyes are so precious!

  97. Another vote for cute here!!

    How could anyone be scared of such a gorgeous bebeh? I want to give him a cuddle 🙂

  98. Creepy CREEPY monkey!

    Can we have more baby duckies purdy please?

  99. Heather says:

    Great he’s going to give me nightmares. NOT CUTE!

  100. D: What’s with all the terrifying pictures lately?! This isn’t cute! I’m sure he’d be slightly cuter if he wasn’t pulling that face, but come on, that’s just scary ;~;

  101. sissie12 says:

    I am going to eat you!!!!!

  102. Seconds later, the beast had latched its mouth-parts on to the photographer. Before they could even scream, their body had been sucked dry of all liquid. The creature, now distended by its prey’s juices, waddled off to its cave to rest… digest… and grow.

  103. i love its almost hairless head!!! Its teeth are ugly but it what makes him cuuuuute!!

  104. he’s got more hair… on his back… on his arms… than on his head.

    i know it’s because he hasn’t grown into his orangu-body yet…

    and he IS scary looking! I MEAN LOOK AT THOSE TEETH!!!! COOOOME ON~!!!!

  105. Elizabeth P says:

    All of you nuffs are nuts.

    Absolutely nuts.

    I’ve seen way more ugly human babies than this little guy. Sheesh.

    He’s not scary, he’s playing with whoever’s got the camera!!!


  106. That doesn’t make him cute, he’s ugly and scary looking.

  107. Monkey himself = way cute. The pose = scary.

  108. awww how sweet, wata cheeky monkey bless his lil cotton socks lolxx

  109. haha ‘dreamses’ haha. XD

    HAN: “Yeah, that’s what I thought. Mynock. Chewie, check the rest of the ship, make sure there aren’t any more attached. They’re chewing on the power cables.”

  111. i love squirrels says:

    AHAHA this is FUNNY and it was extremely unexpected… XD
