I Think I Can, I Think I Can

I can do this. I’m a monkey! Monkeys swing! (gulp) Oh wow, don’t look down. Gotta focus! What’s the worst that could happen? OK. Here I go!

Mama Wants to Stay in Touch

Um, Mama, we know it’s hard but you might not want to be too touchy-feelie with that one.

It’s a TEENAGER! Dun, Dun, Dunnnn!

Mama says, “Fine, then I’ll just hold this little leaf right here.” (sniff)

Postcards from the Edge

Sarah van E. says, “I made this photograph in a monkey zoo in the Netherlands!…It also has a baby on it’s back but sadly enough it’s not really seeable.” Many of us have an invisible monkey on our back, Sarah, but we don’t look nearly as cute carrying them around.

Carl Suspects Some Monkey Business

“I guess I’m supposed to tap here… Erm, no… So maybe if I slide my finger like this… Nope. Y’know, I’m beginning to think this thing I bought isn’t a real iPhone.”

Who ResQte Who?

This is Mika.

Jordan tells us, “He’s about 6 weeks old and was orphaned soon after being born. We were offered him seemingly at random by his owner outside of a shopping centre, after being told that he’d be put down if no one took him. We didn’t hesitate at all to welcome him into our family.”

Mika is settling right in to his forever home.

Now that he feels secure, he’s found his voice and he’s not afraid to use it.

He’s so comfortable he’s taken control of the remote and now everyone has to watch Blue Planet all the time.

And, finally, Mika surveys his new-found territory from the safety of his Catbus.

Best wishes to Jordan O., Maxine and Mika and thanks to Patti for taking great photos.

Wrong Side of the Bed

My hair’s messy! It’s early! The sun’s too bright! Why is there no breakfast?!

I Say Old Chap

Verily I have found Tarzan on occasion overly coarse and lacking the diligent diction common to dignified discourse. Many a time I have been moved to hand write a letter of complaint to the Hollywood Committee On Such Matters.

Krystian S. very kindly sent in this polite baby Lar Gibbon named Sholo, born August 2012 at Drusillas Park.

Tiny Jimmy Durante Spotted at St. Louis Zoo

Whoops! That’s not Jimmy Durante, that’s baby Colobus monkey, Kivuli. My bad.

Here she is hanging out with her mom, Jimmy Durante Cecelia.
