    Who remembers the monkey from Friends? It's after I saw that monkey that I really started to love monkeys! I want a pet monkey. 'Tis a pity they are illegal to keep as pets in the UK =(

    They are really a joy to see when you go to the zoo. They're always active and running about. When they look at you as well, they look so cute and so intelligent. I could never hate them, they're really lovely and sweet.

    Escapee's And Mass Murder

    Monkey's are truly beautiful creatures. They're almost like looking at babies, only babies who have adapted to live by themselves in a strange and wild environment. My favourite monkey has to either be the Golden Tamaran or a Gibbon. A Golden Tamaran has a large mane of bushy...

    How Can You Not?

    They are some of the cutest little creatures ever. Although there are some I'd stay far away from. Baboons are some of those beasts you better stay away from. I kinda like Spider Monkey's though they are awesome. But I don't know if I'd like getting pelted with feces.
