Wow!!!! Incredible capture!
Zanzibar Arch. is the only place where they live, so needless to say, they are endangered. So there is fear that physical contact with humans could make them sick, and they die off.The only trouble is, they have no problem coming right up and touching you! We were dodging monkeys left and right!
I would love to see a newborn in the wild that close, I only got a chance once with a Colombian red howling monkey, but they were really really high in the forest and they were like really mad, so we left.
It still had umbilicus attached, it had to be less than 48 hrs old. And the mother... she just stared at it in way that, to me, could only be called loving wonder.
