Monkeh adopts kitteh

Of course. Of course he does [shaking head]

This just in via The Telegraph:

“A young long tailed macaque monkey has been spotted in a forest protectively nuzzling and grooming a ginger kitten and making sure no harm came to it. The extraordinary sight was captured by amateur photographer Anne Young while on holiday at the Monkey Forest Park, in the Ubud region of Bali, Indonesia.”

“The kitten enjoyed the attention being lavished on it by its protective carer and made no effort to leave.”

The insanity continues over at the Telegraph. Thanks for Pointer-Outering, Brinke G.!

THIS JUST IN: Thing One & Thing Two

Here’s jubilant news from the Prospect Park Zoo:
Baboon baby birth, and not just one, but two!
They’ve each got a mommy, both rambunctious males,
So feisty they’ve got to be held by their tails.

So while the boys wrassle and play baboon games,
The Zoo asks the public to help give them names.
At the moment, they just call the kids “one” and “two,”
But that’s no good, peeps, so you know what to do.

HD available in video. More news, video at Gawker.

UPDATE: New! Improved! Now with 82% more Jamin!

Gorilla Side-eye

Check out this ‘I’m not having it’ pregnant Gorilla at the Bronx Zoo action:

Ah-uhn!!!

According to photographer, Inspirerer and Sender-Inner Jackie D., “I think I found the most disapproving gorilla on the planet.”

Settle Down.

Maybe next time you don’t give both the baby and dog an Entenmann’s raspberry danish…

Are You Intimidated Yet? Huh? Are You?

Chuckle at me, will you? Well, my fine friends, you’ll be chuckling from the back of those chubby pink faces when I intimidate you with the awe-inspiring power of my chest-beating territorial threat display! Prepare to cower — here it comes!

My, what an adorable — YEEEAAUUGH!!

Two new red-ruffed lemurs were born at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay last month, and that can only mean one thing: It’s time to play everybody’s favorite party game, “Guess When The Photo Session Went Horribly Wrong.”

A+ for Gorilla School

This just in from Chief Sister Officer. Excerpt is from Aqua Vita Films:

“In the African jungle, conservationist Damian Aspinall searches for Kwibi, a lowland gorilla he hasn’t seen for 5 years. Kwibi grew up with Damian at his Howletts Wild Animal Park in England. When he was five, he was released into the forests of Gabon, West Africa as part of conservation programme to re-introduce gorillas back into the wild. Now Kwibi’s 10 years old, much bigger and stronger. Will Damian find him? Will Kwibi attack him?”

What a remarkable encounter. Want to know more? You can adopt a Gorilla School baby here.
