Weekly Photo Challenge: Love

I visited the Palm Beach Zoo yesterday and noticed monkey business among the trees!

Zooming in a little closer, it looked an awful lot like love. 🙂

For a complete list of the Zoo’s inhabitants, check out their Animals Page.  FYI, I’m heading there now: I loved this wacky, intense bird from the Zoo Wetlands Area and need a species i.d.!

    • The monkeys appeared so gentle with their grooming. Although I didn’t get a good enough photo to post here, another female had a newborn in her arms, and they looked SO humanlike in stance. Amazing sight!

  1. The monkeys look suspiciously like chimpanzees, which technically means they’re apes. 😉 I’m glad someone was able to ID the bird because it’s really neat looking!

    • Here’s the wierd thing…I thought they were chimps, too, but the sign at their habitat listed them as Spider Monkeys. Ordinarily I wouldn’t question a zoo sign and would have identified them as Spider Monkeys when writing this post. However, I think the sign was wrong which is why I referred to them rather generically!!

      • Yeah, those shoulders look way too muscular for spider monkeys. I was around them in Honduras, and they are much thinner in build. That might have been an old sign left behind when they moved the animals around?

  2. Thank you so much for very wonderful blog when I leave Washington state in May of 2013 solo sailing around the world I will miss all blogs online
