Who Me?


I'm not sure whether you'd call what this resident of the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo is sitting in a door or a window but his expression as he was doing it cracked me up. (And since I know you're going to ask, no, this Black-Gold Howler Monkey is neither in the Bible nor native to this area - he's native to the rainforests of central South America. The "Biblical" section of the Zoo is just one exhibit, the rest has animals from all over the world.)

Too funny. He looks deep in thought....

What an amazing find! He looks like a caricature :)

Robin, how can you be certain that one of that fella's ancestors wasn't on the arc? He might belong in the biblical section of the zoo after all! ;)

Oh hey, and do they have the Leviathan from the parting of the Red Sea?

Mimi said...

He's really playing to the gallery!
His fur looks lovely and silky too.

Robin said...

I'm not sure Quilly, Leviathan also means whale in Hebrew. Wherever the name came from though it's one hell of a find!

I'm glad you explained. We ought to be very thankful to such animals who are involuntary captive ambassadors removed from their natural habitat so that we can learn about and hopefully better respect them. Happy New Year!
