Hairy Monkey

Posted: June 9, 2012 in Nikon D40, Tennessee

So what do you suppose this guy’s thinking? These monkey’s are always very expressive, and quite regal looking too, when properly groomed of course. Maybe he’s like one of those animals in the Madagascar films, and he’s got aspirations, perhaps a lady friend, maybe he’s contemplating a coup d’etat of the existing hierarchy later on in the afternoon. On the other hand, maybe he’s just thinking about throwing some poo at the kid who keeps on yelling for him to “do something.”

This was taken at the Memphis Zoo in Tennessee. Having never been there at the time I was a little unsure as to what it would be like. Let me just say this; if you are ever in the Memphis area, you MUST check out the zoo. It is a very neat place to visit. The grounds are very well maintained, the animals appear to have nice large enclosures, and the park is laid out in such a way as to have a nice flow through all the exhibits without too much backtracking.
