As maybe some of you know, I'm doing my practice on a primate center (two weeks to go and I graduate!!! YAY!) Well, last week I took my camera, and it was a very slow day (2 of the caretakers didn't go, so there was nobody available to catch the monkeys that we needed to take blood samples from, so there was really nothing to do...). Since we were bored, decided to take pictures of the 2 orphans that are being hand-raised...
First, Marimar is around 3 months old, and she learned how to escape from the cardboard box where they put her during the day to play... this is where we found her:
The bird there fell from the nest and one of the girls is hand feeding it to release it when it's older... we still don't know what bird it is, but we keep looking at all the birds around to see if we manage to guess what it is! Anyway, the bird's face in this pic if priceless, it's like he is saying "HELP! Escaped monkey trying to eat me!!!"
Here are Marimar (lying down) and Tiffany
