    Yes. I am very much an animal person. I love all types. I even feel for pesky flies and sometimes I can't go through with the urge to kill them.

    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.

    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.
