Visiting The Zoo- Part II

Although monkeys are not my favorite part of the zoo, these guys proved to be pretty entertaining during our visit. It seemed that they purposely wanted to put on a little show for everyone. And there was an especially large crowd for them to entertain since everyone came running into the building to escape the rain.

These two were really funny. When we first saw them, the one was quietly cleaning another ape in the corner. Then the troublemaker showed up and the fight started. They'd swing around for a minute then crash together and roll around wrestling, then do it all over again. Everyone was laughing!

As they rolled around, they would sometimes crash into the barrier wall between them and us. I wished I'd gotten a better picture of that.

This gorilla was lumbering around his area then turned to give us a "why don't you buzz off?" stare. I guess he wasn't in the mood for company.
There were bears around, but they were either sleeping or hiding in the caves. At least we had the signs to show us what they look like!

"People go to the zoo and they like the lion because it's scary. And the bear because it's intense, but the monkey makes people laugh."
