Pictures of monkeys and the trunk monkey video

So here’s the gist of today’s posting.

Monkeys:  Pictures of monkeys, talk about monkeys, and
monkey business.  (Well, maybe not monkey business exactly…)

When we get back, we will have some great pictures we took, and
hopefully, (as one of our

As we don’t have any of our own monkey pictures YET,
we’re sharing THESE pictures of monkeys with you instead.

When it comes to the monkeys we’re going to see in Africa, it’s
most likely that we’ll see baboons and spider monkeys.  Apparently, baboons
don’t really mind at all having humans around, but spider monkeys are generally
skittish.  We hope we’ll see a full range, but we’ll be happy to see any
monkeys that see fit to grace us with their presence!

And for the people who don’t think that baboons are
monkeys…well, we can have the debate later.  (Actually, feel free to
leave us your comments below.) But for now, here are some pictures of monkeys
from all over.
