Sometimes, in life, you find youtself in a moment. THAT moment, that brings you out of the default mode that we live in most of the time and makes you feel so alive and happy that it brings you to tears.
Watching these two baby orangutan siblings play and cuddle in a potato sack was exactly like that. Its suprising how animals bring out the human in us.
If mandrills had mantlepieces,this one would defiantly go up as the perfect Kodak “family photo” moment.
To the right : Father mandrill displays his affection by allogrooming his juvenile (a social activity in primates that affirms family and friendly bonds, as well as good hygiene)
To the left: Mama mandrill doesn’t slack on her parental duties either, as we see her sitting and breastfeeding her baby, so that it can grow up to be a strong and healthy monkey.
A+ to these parents.
