    Amazing photos. My favorite has to be the first. I don’t know how many times I’ve had to lay a hand on a shoulder to stop a niece or nephew from getting into something they shouldn’t.

    Love the monkey one. I’ve been on both ends of that situation. Turns out kids are the same in every species.

    Though I bet monkey babysitters never have to explain to the parents why the child has fewer eyebrows than he started the day with.

  3. Poor li’l gorilla guy in the last photo looks so sad. 😦 I want to make him feel better!

  4. Turns out Zebras are white with black stripes. They confirmed that genetically a few years ago, but I could have told them that long ago. Just look how the black stripes “run out” at the back end and under the belly.

    The third picture: Firefox logo?

  6. @Night Owl: Precisely what I thought.

  7. No monkeh business?
