I DONT EAT LUNCH. I USE MY LUNCH BREAK TO WATCH THE MONKEYS EAT THEIRS.

BECAUSE I WILL NEVER ENJOY A SANDWICH AS MUCH AS WATCHING KUMBA THE MANDRILL PEELING AND EAT HIS CORN LIKE THE BOSS KING HE IS.

Orangutan mother embraces her child. That look in her eyes…


Monkey manners and manipulations…

An interesting tidbit:

Monkey etiquette dictates that nobody attacks someone holding a baby.

10262133_10152126205328325_8035688103525755765_nIt has been registered (for instance , in gelada herds) that primates will grab an infant during  a sticky situation of confrontation and use a baby as a shield.

Such behaviour is fascinating, as pushing back our bias of baby exploitation, we recognize that this is actually a well thought-out strategy, and the very fact that are capable of such unconventional problem solving and manipulation only further demonstrates the complex composition of the monkey mind.
