THIS JUST IN: Strike A Pose!

Don’t just sit there, let’s get to it! Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it!!!

Quoting Mail Online, “Photographer Simone Sbaraglia, 41, captured the funny scenes on a trip to North Sulawesi, Indonesia, where the monkeys are endemic but critically endangered due to poaching and loss of habitat.”

Arms on orangutan are larger than they appear

Maybe I am going to hug you, or maybe I am going to mug you!

Apparently a cheeky macaque kept stealing this orangutan’s fruit! Via Daily Mail on Facebook.

And Then Along Comes Jari

Education Specialist Lucy B. of the Jackson (Mississippi) Zoo wrote us an email, and sez: “Hi there! I work at the Jackson Zoo in Mississippi, and as a super fan of your page, I thought that these pics of our new baby gibbon would be perfect for you. B/C is there nothing cuter? I don’t think so.” [You’re right. -Ed]

Jari feeding
“These are pictures of Jari, a female white-handed gibbon born on November 22, 2013. She was a very welcomed early Christmas present. Her parents are Mia and Cookie-Man.” [COOKIE MAN? Great name. -Ed]

Jari glamour shots
“Unfortunately, Mia doesn’t have a reliable parenting history, so Jari was whisked off to be cared for by the veterinary staff. Our vet tech Donna has the task of feeding her every 2-3 hours, 24 hours a day.” [Donna needs Red Bull. -Ed]

Jari hold on
“Jari is name after the Indonesia word for ‘fingers,’ because as a gibbon she needs to have long arms and fingers to help her swings through the trees. Hope you love her as much as we do!” [Roger that. -Ed]

Jari Not Another picture
“All photos were taken by Chris Todd. You can check out pics on our Facebook page.”

This is what there would be if the munchkins and the flying monkeys got together.

To Squee Or Not To Squee

I’m gonna put my money on SQUEE right now. To review:

Verb: To squeal with glee; from a combination of the two words; the sound of an excited fangirl.
Noun: A feeling of excitement and happiness, such that one feels like Squeeing. “You wouldn’t believe how full of Squee I am right now.”

Are you ready for this?

Hey, Up Here U Guyz!!

They’re giving us the hairy furry eyeball! (See hovers for Creditos.)
