Barbary Macaque – 11/06/2016
This week I am actually showing you all a photo which I captured at the beginning of the Half Term break. I just think it’s so cute I couldn’t not share it with you.
On the first day of the break the kids and I headed off to Trentham Monkey Forest to meet up with friends. We visited the Monkey Forest earlier in the year when it was bitterly cold, but now the summer is here its a lot warmer and there are great new additions to the forest. On our wander around we meet with various guides to the park, they give us various facts and knowledge of which the kids just love to absorb. Upon looking at this Monkey we were informed that this mother had actually given birth that morning!
I love how the baby is just looking around, taking in its surroundings, whilst its Mother is watching her new child with so wonderment… either that or she’s sleeping off her busy night!
Even for a baby a couple of hours old I am amazed just how alert a Barbary Macaque is and how it grips onto its mother whilst moving around.
