Behbeh monkeys suck their thumbs too you know

…and, and they have stuffed animals too.

It’s perfectly natural. Stop looking at her like that.

The World We Share is reportin’ that a behbeh Mandril monkey was caught snorgling a stuffed animal and sucking her thumb at the Yageer Zoo in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province of China. Hoverfacts and more on this story over at What’s On Ningbo.

Kokamo ‘n’ Monroe

Kokamo, a gorilla at San Diego Zoo Safari Park, gave birth to a baby named Monroe this past June:





Sender-Inner George M. took these gorgeous photos when Monroe was just over a month old. Hoverfacts via TheWorldWeShare.

Raised By Ferrets

The little orphan child, who mysteriously appeared one day, was taken in by the local ferrets and raised as one of their own. They take baths together, followed by a bedtime story, then steal some jewelry, hide dirty socks and tunnel under the rug. Just like a real family.

I Put the ‘ehn!’ in Fence

Oh. Hey-lerrrrrrhe!


Apparently, this little prosh guy was inspired by other monkehs and kept attempting to scale the fence too. But it’s so hard! FENCE-HANCE:


Must…try!

Baboon, Bush Baby Bond Beautifully

Behold, brethren: Baboon, barely but a babe, bonds to bushy baby bush baby. Between breakfast bowl and burbly bottle banquet, big brother bears the beautiful bundle with boundless bliss. A burden? Bah! A bother? Balderdash! Best buddies? You better bet your bright bare butt!

The Lonely Life of the Paparazzi

People think it’s all glamourous and exciting — dash in, get the picture, then off to the pub — but that’s not it at all, mate. Stakeouts, they’re the worst: Cramped for hours in the boot of me car, waiting for that one perfect shot of a murder suspect’s wife’s boyfriend’s dentist’s nurse’s transsexual lover.

But the public’s got a right to know, and sacrifices like these are what quality journalism’s all about, in’nit?

“Cheeeese!”

According to The Daily Mail, the following portrait was taken by a macaque who became fascinated in a camera lens that was left idle, decided to borrow it and snap these awesome Monkey self portraits!

THIS JUST IN: The Most Patient Cat of All Time

Obviously, this video was cut short because of a murder at the end.

And this is just getting ridiculous:

It’s a virtue, Barbarella!

THIS JUST IN: Word from Theo!

Great news, Team Overload! We just got two of our favorite things delivered to our inbox: kitten pics AND WORD FROM THEO*!

Hi Meg! Got a little something here, courtesy of Laurie C. of IBKC, the Dearborns, and the US Freakin’ Army. (Do please follow those links.)

The tabby is Phoebe, the budding Siamese is Sheldon (who looks like Rikki at that age!) and the gray-and-white in my cargo pocket is Pearla. The two calicos are Geraldine and Marla (I don’t remember which is which, sorry). The guy in the ACUs is, well, me, of course.

Cheers! I have 1 week left until I get 2 weeks of leave, and I will be going HOME. Minnesota bound! Take care.

*For any folks new to the site, Theo was our comment moderator extraordinaire for years, before the Army called! We’re so glad to hear how well he’s doing and maintaining his connection to The Qte. I know, let’s tell him how much we miss him, in the comments!
