Watching these monkeys was a reminder of primal parental protection - at one point the boys had gone under the bars toward the actual mesh cage....and the dad monkey (there was a new baby) came rushing toward them, jumped on the mesh and bared his teeth. it was terrifying...as he intended! Thank God the boys had backed off and were out of his reach...amazing huh
My primal parental protection kicked in at that point and i roundly scolded tom, who i felt was to blame for the boys being so close!
These penguins inhabit the 'members lawn' which we are fortunate enough to be able to use...i love the 3 boys standing there...and i only just caught seb before he raced off.
