Nangua Down Undah

langur-7Say hello if you will to Bebeh Nangua, who has just come online at the Sydney Taronga Zoo. (“Nangua” means “Pumpkin” in Mandarin. Makes sense.)

They are usually born this color but change to black around their first birthday.

Nangua is a “Leaf Monkey” or François’ langur, a very rare monkey.

He was found in his mum’s arms back on November 7th.

Toss That Banana Here! I’ll Catch It With My Foot!

When you have to compete for lunch with a zillion other little guys- you need to get creative!

“From my recent trip to Bali and the Sacred Monkey Forest. Bold, cheeky monkeys will steal everything, even the hardest heart. Isn’t there a Cute Rule about a baby animal with its foot out? Species is the crab-eating macaque, though this one is eating a teeny banana. Thanks for being the antidote to cynicism.” – Carrie, Brooklyn, NY.

“Hey Girl…”

“Look into my eyes, girl. What do you see? Something distracted you…..didn’t it?”

Young Master Algernon T. Farpherphaffle Contemplates His Afternoon Agenda

“(A jaunt through the forest on my favorite stallion, I wonder? Or perhaps to purloin father’s Packard for an afternoon of croquet at Mimsy’s. Or merely to retire to the library and untangle the Gordian knot of Plato. Or simply enjoy a tasty banana. A banana would be nice indeed. I like bananas. I even enjoy the word ‘banana.’ Banana. Banana. Baaaaaaah-naaaaaaaan-naaaaaaah.)”

Monkey Bizness In Bali: “Take Care Your Stuff”

_DSC2507Cute Overload reader Eimear sure gets around. A couple of months back it was Turtles In Singapore, and now it’s Monkeys in Bali. “I recently visited the monkey forest in Bali and thought some of the pictures might be cute enough to submit to Cute Overload,” she says. “Especially the baby monkeys! Even though they tried to steal my phone and things, it was still an adorable experience.”

Her extensive travels are chronicled here, and her blog comments about each photo below are in the hovers.









Thunderbolts And Lightning, Very Very Frightening!

(Speakers up, natch!) Nothing like a snippet of Bohemian Rhapsody to put a jolt in your day, eh?
