Friday’s Primate Party

Two related stories from India today.

Our first monkey has adopted a kitten, and everything is peachy… so far!

I can has monkeh milk?

Our second primate buddy adopted a puppy, which went down well, and then tried to adopt someone’s child, which did not. He’s now been removed to a zoo, where he will hopefully have the opportunity to look after all the other orphans.

Funnily enough, both articles mention the Hindu monkey god Hanuman. I can’t help but wonder whether monkeys who display the aggressive side of their nature, as well as their caring side, are considered to be incarnations of this deity.

I added some links to my blogroll today – go check ’em out!
